St Kilda forward Tim Membrey is reportedly 'on track' to continue his AFL career after it appeared in some jeopardy in September.

Doubt hung over Membrey's footballing future after he was withdrawn from Ross Lyon's Saints side that lost to the GWS Giants in an elimination final last month.

The forward's very late exclusion -- on the morning of the match -- raised eyebrows, as St Kilda listed Membrey as out for mental health reasons; replaced by fellow goalkicker Anthony Caminiti.

Consequently, the 29-year-old's professional future seemed in some doubt, as the full focus was rightly placed on the veteran's ongoing health.

However, according to a Herald Sun report authored by Sam Landsberger on Thursday evening, Membrey 'appears' to be progressing promisingly in a return to AFL action.

Landsberger claims Membrey is 'progressing well' and noted the Saint's continued presence at the club's Moorabbin headquarters throughout the off-season period.

Membrey played just seven senior games in 2023, as he battled a knee injury that limited his ability to stay on the field.

Defender Jack Sinclair, wingman Mason Wood, utility Mitchito Owens, midfielder Marcus Windhager, defender Liam Stocker, and spearhead forward Max King are reportedly among the marquee Saints names that have been sighted getting in off-season work at St Kilda HQ.

The Saints and list boss Stephen Silvagni recently capped this year's free agency and trade period, importing ex-Carlton midfielder Paddy Dow and former Fremantle speedster Liam Henry, as well as offloading Jade Gresham to Essendon and Nick Coffield to the Western Bulldogs.

The club now shifts its focus to the 2023 National Draft, which commences on November 20 and continues into a second night on November 21.
