Western Bulldogs premiership ruckman Jordan Roughead has flown to Perth as he is due to meet with the West Coast Eagles on Friday

The restricted free agent, along side with his manager Bruce Kaider, will be in discussion of filling in for injured Eagles ruckman Nic Naitanui.

It is believed that Roughead has told the Bulldogs that he will be exploring his options this off-season.

Eagles ruckman Scott Lycett is out of contract at season’s end, and it is believed he will take up a deal from Port Adelaide or St Kilda, rather than remaining in Perth.

The 27-year-old has played 138 games for the Bulldogs, including all 25 during their premiership year in 2016.
