Former Sydney-listed forward Hugo Hall-Kahan has signed with VFL club Sandringham following his delisting at the Swans.

The 20-year-old joined Sydney through the 2022 Mid-Season Draft as the 11th overall selection after a promising start to the year in the Talent League with the Sandringham Dragons.

Hall-Kahan averaged 14.8 disposals, 4.5 marks and 2.0 goals per game from his six matches as an over-age prospect for the Dragons, with Sydney making a move for the medium-sized forward midway through last year.

The emerging attacker played 30 VFL games for Sydney's reserves during his 18-month stint in New South Wales, booting 29 goals and averaging 14.6 touches per outing.

After not being offered a new deal with Sydney for the 2024 season, Hall-Kahan has returned home in signing with the Sandringham Zebras for next year to play under coach Jake Batchelor.

"Having Hall-Kahan, who has spent 18 months on an AFL list, appealed to us," Batchelor said in a club statement.

"His ability to get up and down the ground as a half-forward is something our team has identified as a focus for 2024, and we look forward to adding strings to his game as the year goes on."

Hall-Kahan's move to the Zebras follows St Kilda's pledge to draft at least one Sandringham VFL player to their rookie list each year fro 2024.

With another AFL opportunity potentially on offer, the athletic attacker could earn a reprieve at Moorabbin in 12 months time if he doesn't garner interest prior to next year's draft window.

The Zebras have also signed overlooked draft prospect Tarkyn Leary and former GWS VFL-listed defender Mitch Ryan this off-season.

Sandringham amassed just five wins and one draw from 18 games this year to finish 16th on the VFL ladder.
