Star Crows defender Rory Laird could depart West Lakers at the end of the season amid the club’s internal review, according to SEN’s Dwayne Russell.
Russell said as many as 10 players could leave in what is sure to be a a dramatic list turnover following a disappointing season.
Russell believes Geelong are a potential landing spot for Laird, who could command a top 10 draft pick in return.
“I’m hearing there could be at least 10 or even more players leaving the Crows at the end of this review,” he told SEN’s Dwayne’s World.
“The latest big name out of nowhere that could be leaving the Adelaide Crows, according to the rumours that are circulating to me, is Rory Laird.
“Rumours are circulating with the people that are in pretty high places that I’m speaking to that Rory Laird could be a trade possibility.
“It’ll be a top 10 pick as a trade pick for the Adelaide Crows if they do trade him.
“I’m hearing the Cats might be a contender. Laird’s old teammate Patrick Dangerfield calls a few of the shots at the Cats.
“The Cats will get a good pick or two because they’ll trade Tim Kelly back to the west.”
Laird, a two-time All Australian and two-time club and best fairest winner, is contracted until the end of the 2021 season.
