Hawthorn veteran Shaun Burgoyne is closing in on a move that will extend his playing career, with the 36-year-old set to join the Suns.

Burgoyne has been offered a three-year deal in a player-coach role with the club, with the Herald Sun’s Sam Edmund reporting the news on Tuesday morning on SEN.

“I’m hearing Shaun Burgoyne is very, very close to being formalised as a recruit at the Gold Coast Suns,” Edmund told SEN Breakfast.

“I’ve been told it’s a three-year deal to join the Suns and reunite with the CEO Mark Evans. There would be a coaching component involved in that as well.

“It would be a great get for the Gold Coast Suns, that’s no secret. I think it’s really, really close.”

Burgoyne played 18 games in 2019 for the Hawks, which took his career tally to 376.
