Former North Melbourne captain Andrew Swallow has expressed his desire to join brother David at the Gold Coast Suns.

Swallow has been linked to a move to join his brother on more than one occasion over the past few seasons and the midfielder told LightFM on Sunday he is keen to link up with the former No.1 draft pick on the Gold Coast.

"I'd love to get up there with my brother, (but) we'll just have to wait and see," Swallow said.

"They've just appointed a new coach. It depends on where their list is at and what they're doing, but that would be something I'd definitely have a look at if it came up. 

"I'd love to get up there and really support (David)."

Swallow has one year to run on his current contract, but with injuries and form restricting him to 16 games this season and with the Roos' currently undergoing an aggressive list rebuild, the club could also be open to trading the 30-year-old.

"We've got a Trade Period coming up which is always interesting. I've got a young family now and wouldn't mind looking at a few different options, but we'll just have to wait and see what happens over the next couple of weeks," Swallow added.

"I haven't really been in this position before, I've been very fortunate. I've played 12 seasons at North Melbourne and I've always been pretty much in contract, so I've never really had any thoughts about doing anything else or being in a position where maybe I'm not getting a game at the club. 

"So it's probably a first for me and something I'll probably just let my manager and the club work through."

The three-time club Syd Barker Medalist has not formally requested a trade. He has played 224 games in 12 years with the Roos.
