Out of contract Adelaide midfielder Rory Sloane has his fair share of Victorian suitors, and now another club has joined the race for the 28-year-old.

The Herald Sun’s Sam Edmund revealed on SEN Breakfast Hawthorn have thrown their hat into the ring for Sloane, and are now one of the several clubs who are interested in him.

“Rory Sloane is being linked to big Victorian clubs, one in particular being Hawthorn, who despite landing some big fish in recent years, are not immune from these discussions,” Edmund told SEN Breakfast.

Sloane has played just four matches this season after suffering a foot injury in round two against Richmond, and hasn’t played since the Crows’ loss to the Pies in round four.

Despite their interest, SEN Breakfast co-host Garry Lyon believes Sloane wouldn’t be the right fit at the Hawks, and says they should go after some quicker midfielders.

“He is not the sort of player Hawthorn would want,” Lyon said.

“They need fast midfield talent. I would want to have a look at my mix.”
