“There’s a bit of a rumour running around at the moment that Darcy Moore has effectively signed with Sydney,” Browne told Triple M’s Hot Breakfast.
“I spoke with his management yesterday. There is still absolutely dialogue with Collingwood, there’s no worries yet.
“It’s an interesting discussion point in the context of Collingwood, perhaps looking at getting some money together to go after Tom Lynch.
“I reckon Collingwood’s having a good look at how much Lynch would cost and whether he would compliment the side.”
Moore’s manager Liam Pickering confirmed earlier this month that he has spoken to the Swans about a potential move, hinting that the 22-year old has been concerned about Collingwood’s handling of his injuries.
“There is a heap of clubs interested in him outside of Collingwood,” Pickering told SEN Breakfast.
“I had discussions with a number of clubs, and I’m not disputing the fact that the Swans have got interest in him – they have.
“It won’t be a money thing, no, because at the end of the day he’s going to get well paid wherever he’s playing, so I don’t think the money will be the issue.
“He’s a Melbourne boy, his old man played for Collingwood and he was a Collingwood kid growing up, so there’s certainly no issues at Collingwood.”
Moore has played four games for the Pies this season and was last seen in the team’s round eight clash with Geelong where he hurt his hamstring.
