Saints keen on Lions’ captain Rockliff

Brisbane captain Tom Rockliff is reportedly being chased by St Kilda.

The Footy Show’s Damian Barrett reported on the program last night that the Saints are set to make a big play for the midfielder, following his contract negotiations stalling with the Lions.

News Corp reported on Tuesday that Rockliff and the club have hit a road block in negotiations, with the Lions unwilling to agree to the skipper’s asking price.

Rockliff is reportedly requesting a five-year deal worth $4 million.

The 26-year-old has played 126 games for the Lions in seven seasons with the club.

He has averaged 27.6 disposals in nine games this season.
