Former Lion Tom Joyce and ex-Dockers tall Luke Strnadica are set to train with West Coast this summer to potentially rekindle their AFL career.

Joyce was delisted by Brisbane in October after going unused in Chris Fagan's side across three years in Queensland, returning to the Sharks this off-season.

The 21-year-old signed a two-year deal with East Fremantle last month, joining Strnadica at New Choice Homes Park, with the former Fremantle ruckman having enjoyed a strong season in the WAFL this year.

According to The West Australian's Jordan McArdle, the pair are set to link up with the Eagles at Lathlain Park this season in vying for an AFL list spot.

The Eagles currently have three open list spots for next season, however two of those positions will need to be filled by Category B rookies.

AFL clubs have begun to invite overlooked draftees and delisted AFL players to training for the coming months, with the Pre-Season Supplemental Selection Period opening on January 10.

That window will close on March 9, with clubs able to keep list spots open for the Mid-Season Rookie Draft on June 1.

Sides are able to open further positions on their list should a player be moved to the inactive list or retire, something the Eagles will be considering given the concerns surrounding All-Australian defender Brad Sheppard.

It is understood that Sheppard is likely to call time on his career after battling ongoing issues with concussion across the course of the last year.

Should the 30-year-old hang up the boots, another list spot will be open for either Joyce, Strnadica or East Perth prospect Kade Dittmar, who has also been invited to train.
