North Melbourne midfielder Will Phillips is reportedly set to "assess his options" at the end of the season.

With his contract set to expire and limited game time in 2024, rival clubs believe he's on the lookout for consistent senior opportunities after toiling away in the VFL for the majority of the year to date.

News broke that the former Pick 3 is keeping an eye out for his future, which begs the question of which club could be a suitor.


Could it be the youthful Richmond who is set to lose Dustin Martin and Dion Prestia to retirement sooner rather than later?

Or West Coast, who are looking to bolster their midfield stocks around Harley Reid into the foreseeable future?

Here are the top FIVE potential landing spots for Phillips...


1. Richmond

The Tigers pose as the likeliest suitor given their age demographic and where they sit in the competition.

Amid a rebuild, the acquisition of Phillips would provide high-end depth that would flourish once Martin and Prestia retire.

And with Liam Baker and Shai Bolton on the radar of Western Australian clubs, another midfielder would be a necessity for coach Adem Yze.

Thomson Dow has been a surprise packet in 2023 while Jack Ross (23 years old), Hugo Ralphsmith (22) and Kane McAuliffe (19) are all touted as the next wave to support mature agers Tim Taranto and Jacob Hopper.
