REPORTS: Dockers forward set to join Collingwood

Fremantle forward Chris Mayne is reportedly likely to join Collingwood in 2017.

Mayne, who is widely tipped to leave Fremantle this off-season, has been offered a four-year deal by the Magpies, according to Fairfax.

The 27-year-old free agent had been expected to join North Melbourne, however, Collingwood’s offer is believed to have trumped the Kangaroos’ three-year deal.

Mayne has kicked 196 goals in 172 matches with the Dockers.
