REPORTS: Cloke likely to leave Pies

Maligned Collingwood forward Travis Cloke is reportedly set to walk out of the Pies at the end of the season after his latest axing.

Cloke was dropped from the Magpies’ side to face the Bulldogs this weekend, the third time he has been axed this season.

The Footy Show’s Damien Barrett reported on Thursday night that Cloke “is now resigned to getting out of the Magpies”.

After taking nine marks and kicking one goal last week against Richmond, the latest axing has reportedly left the 2010 premiership player “really shattered”.

Several rival clubs are said to have been monitoring Cloke’s situation over the past month, with the Bulldogs one of the clubs that are particularly interested in the 29-year-old.

Cloke is contracted for 2017, however, after being dropped for a third time this year it appears very unlikely that he will remain at the club beyond this season.

The 245 game veteran has kicked 439 goals since making his debut in Round 5, 2005 against Essendon.
