North Melbourne ruckman Todd Goldstein seems set to be on the lookout for a new club in 2023, with the 33-year-old likely to seek chances at a contending team.
According to The Age's Michael Gleeson, the former All-Australian is "almost certain" to entertain offers as the possibility of another "ruck merry-go-round" looms large come season's end.
The Kangaroos' focus on developing young players has seen Goldstein take a back seat as David Noble prioritises the growth of 23-year-old ruckman Tristan Xerri.
The Syd Barker medallist was ranked by Champion Data as the fourth-best ruckman in the AFL in 2021 and has consistently been placed in the upper echelon of players throughout his incredible career.
At the end of 2019, Goldstein was subject to serious interest from Geelong, with the Cats close to securing his signature before the veteran ultimately decided to remain at Arden Street.
Goldstein, who is an unrestricted free agent at season's end, will have a free choice of where he wishes to continue his career should he seek a move from the Kangaroos.
Xerri is also off-contract this season and is tipped to gain interest from elsewhere should his own contract status remain on uncertain grounds.
