There has been no financial offer made by any of the clubs to De Goey, but should he decide to leave Collingwood, will have a host of suitors vying for his services.
The Magpies are currently favoured to retain their 22-year old emerging star and will get a better idea where they stand when they meet with his management after Round 15.
It is estimated that De Goey could be offered something around the $600,000 mark by Collingwood, while rival clubs are set to dangle something closer to $800,000 to entice him to leave.
“We are not entering any conversations. We are putting everything off until at least mid-year and maybe until the end of the year,” De Goey’s manager Ben Niall told the Herald Sun in April.
Niall and Collingwood will now collect all necessary information ahead of their mid-year meeting, including his form, off-field behaviour and professionalism to gauge his value, both from the Pies and rival clubs, as they look to structure a new deal.
The indications have been that De Goey’s preference is to remain at the Holden Centre next season, but there is still a lot to play out in his contract discussions with the club.
