Nathan Broad, a two-time premiership player with the Tigers, is attracting serious interest from a number of clubs, per AFL Media’s Cal Twomey.

Broad, 27, is out of contract at the end of 2020 and contract negotiations between Broad and the Tigers have failed to progress.

Gold Coast, who are looking to add to their half back stocks with current half backs Jarrod Harbrow and Pearce Hanley in the latter stages of their career, are reportedly one of several suitors that are interested in Broad’s services.

Broad is also a close friend of former premiership Tiger and now Sun, Brandon Ellis, which could have a positive effect should a move to the Suns be considered.

Broad has been as consistent as they get since he was recruited as a mature-age player by the Tigers, and has cemented his spot on the Tigers backline since 2017 where he played a big part in the 2017 and 2019 premierships for the Tigers.

Despite having a number of key names sidelined this season, the Tigers have shown their depth can still match it with the best and are heavily favoured to be in the premiership race yet again in 2020.
