Greater Western Sydney defender Aidan Corr is set to depart the club in favour of a return to Victoria via the upcoming free agency window.

Corr has played 98 games for the Giants since being taken with the 14th overall selection in the 2012 draft.

In a statement released by the Giants, it was confirmed that Corr would be seeking a move home to Victoria at the end of the 2020 season, with plenty of clubs set to enquire about the 26-year-old’s signature.

“We understand the reasons behind Aidan’s decision and while disappointed, we wish him well for the future,” GWS general manager of football Jason McCartney said.

Growing reports suggest North Melbourne are heavily chasing the key defender, while plenty of suitors will look to add height to their backline in the upcoming off-season.

Corr remains a restricted free agent with the Giants, meaning the club has the right to match any offer made by a rival club. However, their statement suggests Corr won’t be retained in Sydney for the 2021 season.
