Bennell played just two games for the Dockers in 2017, but is now without a club after they delisted him back in June.
Geelong injury specialist Peter Stanton and his surgeons have been operating on Bennell, and they believe after one more surgery later this month, he’ll be up and running at training by November.
The Herald Sun understands Bennell will meet with a team over the coming weeks, with one source close to Bennell revealing the news.
“Harley will meet with a club in the next two to three weeks to see where his mind is at and where his body is at,” a source told the Herald Sun.
“He believes he can do it.”
