Delisted North Melbourne midfielder Jed Anderson is said to be receiving "growing interest" from the Gold Coast Suns as a potential delisted free agent recruit.

Anderson had been linked to the Queensland club prior to his delisting at Arden Street, with his contract coming to an end and North Melbourne eventually deciding to cut ties with the 28-year-old after seven seasons.

The decision has left the onballer stranded on 99 career AFL matches for his time with the Roos and Hawks, however a 100-game milestone seemingly remains a live chance for Anderson.

The Darwin product has returned to the Northern Territory since leaving North Melbourne, training with the Darwin Buffaloes in recent weeks to keep himself in shape.

Now, according to Fox Footy, the Suns are showing a "growing interest" in Anderson's services as they look to bolster their list with delisted free agents.

The Suns are reportedly showing interest in former Giants defender Jake Stein this off-season, while axed Tiger Sydney Stack has also been linked to the Carrara club.

The trio of targets arise after a busy off-season of departures at Gold Coast, who lost Izak Rankine (Adelaide), Jack Bowes (Geelong) and Josh Corbett (Fremantle) through the trad period.

The Suns also parted ways with Matt Conroy, Oleg Markov, Jez McLennan, Rhys Nicholls and Patrick Murtagh after deciding not to offer the quintet new deals for 2023.

Anderson played 14 games in 2022 after a delayed start to his season plans, having been hesitant to receive a second COVID-19 vaccine following a worrying reaction to his initial jab.

Anderson faced heart complications and fitness issues throughout the pre-season, eventually returning to the Roos in February.

He wouldn't make an appearance at AFL level until Round 8 against Fremantle, but would play 14 consecutive matches for the Roos.

The window for delisted free agency opened on Thursday and will run until November 9 before a one-day break for players to announce their retirement or out-of-contract players to nominate for the draft.

The DFA window will re-open on November 11 and run until the 15th.
