Darcy Moore’s manager Liam Pickering believes the Pies swingman will remain at Collingwood, despite interest from rival clubs.

The Swans have been one of the main suitors for Moore, although Pickering told SEN Breakfast he believes a deal will be struck to keep Moore at the Pies.

“I’m confident he will re-sign with Collingwood,” Pickering told SEN Breakfast.

“All I ever said was Sydney have got some interest. There is still some interest there from a number of clubs but I’ve said all along that I’m confident that we will be able to get it done.

“I’ve been in discussions with Collingwood for a number of weeks now, so I’m comfortable where it is all at.

“I speak to (Collingwood list manager) Ned Guy once a week.

“I’m not putting a timeframe on it, you want to get it done when it’s ready.

“Are there clubs inquiring about Darcy? Of course there are. Darcy is the flavour of the month now.

“Every player that is young and plays in the position Darcy plays and, like a Jordan De Goey, hits a purple patch of form, is going to be paid more than they’re currently worth.

“That’s just the game. You always pay extra to get guys. If you want to move them, you got to pay extra.”
