Despite becoming a free agent at the end of the season, Todd Goldstein remains set on wishing to extend his stay with North Melbourne.

“It’s not something I’m worrying too much about,” Goldstein said on Sportsday.

“The way footy has become; player movement is a big part of it now.

“I think I’m playing good enough footy to get a contract.”

The ruckman has been linked with St Kilda for a potential move, but Goldstein played down the talk of this rumour, stating his desire to remain at North Melbourne and the goals he has in mind for the remainder of his AFL career.

“I’ve always said that in my perfect world I’d be a 300-game player for the North Melbourne footy club and a premiership player as well for them, that’s always been my goal,” Goldstein added.

“Obviously that has to align with what the footy club wants and what the footy club needs.

“I’m not exactly sure about what the latest discussions they have had with my manager, I’m sure I’ll find out over the next few weeks when I get a chance to catch up with him.”

Goldstein has played 230 games for North but in order to reach his goal of 300 games he would need to play at least another three seasons.
