Collingwood defender Tom Langdon is still without a contract for the 2019 season, and AFL journalist Damian Barrett believes the Swans have put an offer in front of him.

Langdon had an impressive finals series for the Pies and was one of Collingwood’s best in their grand final loss to the Eagles, which has alerted clubs to the 23-year-old’s talent.

The Swans have joined Fremantle in the race for Langdon, although Barrett believes his preference would be to remain a Pie.

“The offer officially only came through Tuesday of last week — after the Grand Final,” Barrett said on The Trade Table on Monday night.

“We have drawn the linkage between that occurring — and also Darcy Moore re-signing — with the pursuit of Steven May and the likelihood now that May wants to go and will go to the Melbourne footy club.

“Collingwood needed to sure up what they’ve got, so it has caused issues. Bottom line is he likes Collingwood, loves the people around him too, he does want to stay.

“But there are other clubs having knocked on the door — Fremantle during the course of the season and I believe quite significantly the Sydney Swans quite recently have put a very nice potential offer to him.

“Collingwood’s money is okay, I think it will get close to the Fremantle offer of around $600,000 a year, which I think is fair money for Tom Langdon.”

Langdon played 23 games this season, and has 80 appearances to his name since making his debut for the Pies in Round 1, 2014.
