Nathan Freeman could be set for an AFL lifeline, with Gold Coast considering signing the former St Kilda player.
Freeman toured the Gold Coast facilities and could be signed by the club as a delisted free agent.
Freeman was a shock delisting by the Saints at the end of the 2018 season after playing two games for the club. He had begun to show signs of the player drafted at pick 10 back in 2013 by Collingwood.
“We have been having a talk to Nathan; he has come up and had a look at the facilities. Like many clubs we would like to add some pace, and Nathan has that,” Suns list manager Craig Cameron told The Age.
While Freeman showed promise at the AFL level, his injury history could prove to be key. Freeman missed the first four and a half years of his career with a series of injuries.
“He will have a medical … clearly it is well known he has had problems over his time in the AFL system,” Cameron said.
Freeman is keen to continue his AFL career and believes he has the skill to succeed.
“I think I’ve still got the chance to regain my weapons and my tools, and if I get back to that I think I’ll be a pretty good player,” Freeman told SEN.
