Retired Fremantle ruckman Aaron Sandilands reportedly has no plans of making an AFL return despite interest from clubs, according to a report by PerthNow.
AFL Media's Damian Barrett yesterday reported that a Victorian club had sounded out the 38-year old to make a potential shock comeback via the upcoming mid-season draft on June 2.
Barrett confirmed through Sandilands' manager, Colin Young, that one club had made an enquiry about the big man's availability.
“Without naming the clubs, he has said that there was an enquiry from a Melbourne-based club," Barett said on AFL Daily.
“I also believe in the off-season, (at) Fremantle, when he was working as a part-time assistant coach in the rucking space, were so impressed with him. (They) made comments that he looked as good as ever."
The PerthNow report states that Young confirmed interest in Sandilands from two Victorian clubs, as well as his former team, Fremantle.
However, Sandilands is believed to have indicated he is happy running a business and working at the Dockers in a part-time capacity as ruck coach.
The 211cm meter giant sits third all-time on Fremantle's games played list with 271 AFL appearances from 2003-2019, despite injuries savaging his last few seasons in the league.
Sandilands played just 32 of a possible 88 games across the last four seasons of his career, with 2015 being the last campaign where he eclipsed 20 matches.
His career highlights include winning two best and fairests (2009 and 2015) and four All-Australian selections (2008-2010 and 2014).
