Braydon Preuss is set to become a Demon, according to afl.com.au’s Marc McGowan.

The North Melbourne backup ruckman has reportedly told other clubs to end their interest in acquiring him, as he is settled on joining Melbourne to contribute alongside Max Gawn.

Todd Goldstein has regularly shut Preuss out of the starting North Melbourne lineup, and Preuss is seeking a fresh start at a new club.

Despite resigning with the Roos for three years last October, Preuss failed to play a game of AFL, and wants a chance to play at another club.

North Melbourne will likely look to Tristan Xerri to continue his development as a backup ruckman, behind Goldstein, whereas swingman Majak Daw can be deployed in the ruck.
