Rory Sloane
Rory Sloane will remain a Crow for at least the next season.

Rory Sloane insists there’s nothing but media hype in suggestions he could leave Adelaide to join St Kilda at season’s end.

The Crows superstar, who is currently sidelined with a fractured cheekbone, remains out of contract along with teammates Patrick Dangerfield and Richard Douglas – although Douglas has told he expected to sign a new contract near round 11.

Saints coach Alan Richardson and CEO Matt Finnis both confirmed their club’s interest in Sloane last week.

On the eve of the season, the 2013 club champion said he was “comfortable” with how his contract negotiations were progressing and hinted a new deal with the Crows wasn’t far away.
