The Herald Sun reports that fringe Adelaide midfielder Huge Greenwood is being targeted by Hawthorn, St Kilda, Gold Coast and Brisbane, with the two Victorian clubs leading the chase.

The 27-year-old has put contract talks on hold after Adelaide was hesitant to offer more than a two-year deal, with the midfielder looking for a contract with more security.

A former NBL basketballer, Greenwood has played 50 games in his three seasons with the Crows, raising interest from rival clubs with his goal-kicking ability and pressure acts.

In an interview with the Herald Sun, Greenwood’s manager Michael Oakes said his client is keen to remain at the club, but is after a longer deal.

“He does want to stay and loves being there. Money is not an issue but we are negotiating on the length of contract so we will chat again in September. He would like to stay but it’s parked until the end of the season,“ he said.

Adelaide’s list manager, Justin Reid, will have his work cut out for him this offseason, with Alex Keath and Sam Jacobs also out of contract at season’s end, while the futures of veterans Eddie Betts and Bryce Gibbs remain clouded.

Midfielder Brad Crouch, who is out of contract at the end of next season, is also attracting interest from other clubs after his successful return from injury, including St Kilda.
