Inaugural GWS player Adam Kennedy will be delisted by the club, with the Giants committing to selecting the 31-year-old at next month's Rookie Draft.

Kennedy, who was already under contract with the Giants for 2024, played five of the opening six games for GWS this year before suffering a season-ending ACL injury.

Expected to be fit for the opening half of next season, Kennedy will push for a return in 2024 but will be placed on the rookie list as part of a list manoeuvre by the Giants.

The club confirmed on Tuesday that the foundation Giant will be delisted before being added back to the GWS list via the Rookie Draft on November 22.

Kennedy has played 153 games for the AFL's youngest club - placing him ninth all-time on the club's games leaderboard.

The Western Jets junior was a pre-selected recruit for GWS as part of their expansion into the AFL, with Kennedy featuring in the Giants' first-ever game in the competition against Sydney in 2012.

The Giants have already bid farewell to five players this off-season, with Daniel Lloyd and Phil Davis calling time on their respective careers, while Cameron Fleeton and Jason Gillbee were not offered new deals for 2024.

Ruckman Matthew Flynn left the Giants for West Coast via free agency, with the New South Wales club not bringing any players in through the player movement period.

GWS currently hold Picks 7, 16, 43, 59, 77, 79 and 95 for next month's National Draft.
