The Gold Coast Suns are looking at adding big-bodied midfielder Hugh Greenwood from the Adelaide Crows to bolster their midfield ranks and add a dynamic edge to the team.

The Suns are eyeing Greenwood and Richmond midfielder Brandon Ellis to beef up their side for next season, according to the Herald Sun.

The Suns are also monitoring Isaac Smith’s situation at Hawthorn, but the wingman looks set to stay at the Hawks as part of a contract extension.

Gold Coast are fighting off Hawthorn in the process for the signature of Greenwood.

Four-year deals should be enough to seal the deal for both Greenwood and Ellis to the Suns, with the Tigers likely to receive a second-round compensation pick for losing Ellis.

The Crows are not expected to hand Greenwood a long-term deal and it’s almost inevitable that Greenwood will depart.

The Suns are also expected to receive the number two pick in the 2019 AFL draft along with already having the number one pick as part of the AFL’s ongoing special assistance.
