Collingwood have been urged to hand star duo Jordan De Goey and Darcy Moore new deals for the long-term.

The pair are currently contracted to the Magpies until the end of next season after inking extensions last year, however club champion Mick McGuane has encouraged his former side to lock away the pair soon.

In speaking with The Herald SunMcGuane stated that Collingwood should be looking to table new deals to the exciting pair now instead of facing prolonged talks into their contract year.

“They’ve got to take De Goey off the market,” McGuane said.

“Get it done now and I’d be doing the same with Darcy.

“They need to just get them done and not let it drag into next year."

De Goey has thrived in a recent move into the midfield, having just one game in his past seven go under 25 touches.

Moore had his 2021 campaign ended prematurely following a PCL injury in Round 13 against the Demons, but had looked to back-up his All-Australian campaign of yesteryear in style.

With their contracts coming to and end at the conclusion of the 2022 season, both De Goey and Moore will enter the end of their deals in line with the final year of the AFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The conclusion of the CBA could see players hold out on committing to new deals as they await the results of the new player payments agreement.

The Magpies are facing further contract headaches this season too, with 10 players currently unsigned past this year while the club battles a reported hangover from their salary cap difficulties from 2020.

Mason Cox, Brayden Sier, Darcy Cameron, Jamie Elliott, Steele Sidebottom and Jeremy Howe are among those without deals past 2021.

Adding further strains to the Magpies' list management is Troy Selwood's departure from his position as the club's recruiting boss.

Selwood stepped into the role just six weeks ago after Ned Guy stepped down from his duties.
