Bombers legend Matthew Lloyd has picked eight players who should consider a switch this off-season as they are deemed surplus to requirements by their current employers.

Speaking on Sportsday, Lloyd drew a circle around players from a range of clubs including the Doggies, Tigers and Demons.

Tom Lynch (Adelaide)

The Adelaide veteran has been shown the door by the club after ten seasons at West Lakes.

Lynch is 30 and still has a few good years ahead of him, with a return home to Victoria potentially being on the cards.

With this, Lloyd cited his stellar match on the weekend against the Dees as a perfect example of what the forward can offer.

“29 disposals on the weekend and seven marks and he will make your football club better, he’s a quality human being," Lloyd said.

Ed Richards (Western Bulldogs)

The speedy half-back was out for a big chunk of the year due to injury, but has come back into the fray over the past couple of months.

Despite this, the depth that the Bulldogs boast means that Richards is on the outer and his best chance at regular football might lie outside the walls of Whitten Oval.

Lloyd believes the 22-year-old needs to be utilised in his natural position across half-back.

“I think he gets played out of position. He should be on a half-back flank, they’ve played him on the half-forward line. As good as Luke Beveridge is, I think he plays some players out of position and he’s one of them," he said.

Mitch Wallis (Western Bulldogs)

The Doggies veteran has been out of the team for almost the whole year with a silky forward-line that contains the likes of Aaron Naughton, Jamarra Ugle-Hagan and Cody Weightman being too tough a nut to crack for Wallis.

What most people point to when speaking about the forward's ability is his 2020 form, where he inspired his side to sneak into finals at the eleventh hour.

The Doggies' vice-captain is still only 28 and is very much in his prime. Throw in the fact he is an unrestricted free agent and suddenly you have a very sweet deal for any buying clubs wishing to strengthen their forward-line.

Lloyd cited how his fortunes turned for the worse in a blink of an eye.

“Didn’t it turn quickly for him after such a great year last year," the Essendon great pointed out.

Sam Weideman (Melbourne)

The Dees big man hasn't had a proper run in the side in season 2021, with the likes of Ben Brown and Tom McDonald being the preferred key forward duo for Simon Goodwin.

With this it seems that Weideman is now destined to leave the club after only featuring five times this year and managing three goals.

North Melbourne has been floated as a potential destination for the 24-year-old, with David Noble looking to build a genuine forward-line which already boasts the likes of Nick Larkey and Cam Zurhaar.

Matthew Lloyd spoke about the work that Weideman had to put in to make it at the very top.

“I know he’s got to improve, but Sam Weideman, I think he’s worth in the $500,000 range to another team.”

Mabior Chol (Richmond)

Chol has featured on a few occasions for the Tigers this year, with his best performance being against the Lions in Round 18 where he booted four goals in a commanding display.

He has been linked with a move back north to his home state of Queensland, with the 24-year-old a suitable target for either of the teams from the sunshine state.

With Callum Coleman-Jones getting consistent games in the Richmond side, Lloyd believes it's time for Chol to leave Tigerland.

“There’s no room for Tom Lynch, Toby Nankervis, Jack Riewoldt, Callum Coleman-Jones … so this man, Mabior Chol, I think Richmond has shown their hand that Coleman-Jones is their man," he said.

Quinton Narkle (Geelong)

The Cats midfielder has gotten a fair bit of game-time this year but faces a choice on whether he wants to stay at Kardinia Park or explore other options.

According to manager Ralph Carr there are a number of clubs keeping their eye on the 23-year-old, including the Perth sides who would be looking to lure Narkle back home.

His speed would be a great asset to any team he goes to and would be itching to become a mainstay in any side to truly kickstart his AFL career.

Charlie Constable (Geelong)

Another Cat who is likely to be leaving at the end of the year is young gun Charlie Constable.

The midfielder has found opportunities at the Cattery few and far between since his debut season in 2019, and will almost certainly be looking for a way out this off-season despite reportedly being assured a place in midfield in the future. 

However that promise could be a while off being fulfilled with the midfield stocks of the Cats still being well and truly stacked at this point in time.

Lloyd has his fingers crossed that the 22-year-old will find a new suitor over the off-season.

“I hope a club gives him a chance next year," Lloyd said.

Patrick Lipinski (Western Bulldogs)

This Doggies mid has understandably found it hard to break into the side this year, with the club already boasting the best midfield in the league.

With this, many think that Lipinski might be on the way out at the end of the year in order to nail down some regular football at this crucial stage of his career.

Lloyd believes that a move could be just the medicine.

“A Western Bulldogs smooth-mover, Pat Lipinski, who I think would be good in another environment where he gets more opportunity," he added.
