Multiple Victorian clubs are circling Crows defender Alex Keath, including the Western Bulldogs, according to a report by The Herald Sun.

He is keen to remain in South Australia if the Crows were able to find the right price for the in-form big man.

Keath, 27, has played just the 29 games for the Crows after a prolific cricket career prior to his switch to the AFL, and might be keen to sign a heavy contract based on his delayed start and current form.

Despite reports, the Demons won’t be one of several Victorian sides keen on luring Keath away from the Crows, with a move on the cards likely if Adelaide are to low-ball the star defender.

The Crows are currently in talks with Keath’s manager Neil McMullin, as the club are keen to strike a deal that will satisfy both parties.

Keath’s 2019 season has beckoned talks of an All-Australian nomination, meaning the Crows will have to price a deal higher than first thought.

Adelaide has the draft stocks to regenerate a strong list, but will find themselves in a tiring off-season as situations with Sam Jacobs and Bryce Gibbs are likely to be constricting on their salary.
