Collingwood have their sights set on Adelaide defender Jake Kelly, five years after overlooking him as a potential father-son recruit in the 2013 draft.
Kelly’s father Craig played in the Pies’ 1990 premiership success, and played 122 games for Collingwood during his time at the club.
Since son Jake was selected by the Crows in the 2014 Rookie Draft after Collingwood passed up on him, he’s played 53 games for Adelaide, and was a member of their grand final side in 2017.
The Pies have circled Kelly as a potential replacement for Tom Langdon according to The Advertiser, who is reportedly the subject of a six-year, $600,000 a season deal by the Swans.
Kelly still has a year to run on his contract in Adelaide, although he could return to play alongside his brother, Will.
Will Kelly can also be selected as a father-son pick by the Magpies, and he almost certainly will be in next month’s National Draft.
