Contract talks between Collingwood and their young all-rounder Darcy Moore are set to resume, with both parties looking to discuss the two-year extension that the Pies offered earlier this year.
Murmurs and reports around the league have implied that the Swans have been a club that has shown very strong interest in the swingman, but the Pies have every intention of keeping the 22-year-old on board.
Moore has suffered two hamstring injuries this season, playing only four games so far and could be set to miss more as Collingwood have taken careful action in managing his injury.
Reports suggest that Collingwood’s shorter term offer is a cautionary contract, reflecting that Moore has not seen much game action recently, having unfortunate set backs that have prevented him from stringing consistent performances together.
Magpies coaching staff believed they’d see Moore become a regular defender in their lineup this season, but due to team balance and match up issues, Moore has been up forward three of the four games he has played in 2018 – finding some success, having kicked three goals on the year.
Collingwood is understood to be the only club that has put forward a formal offer for Moore.
