Sydney free agent Will Hayward has addressed trade rumours linking his name to a move back to his home state at the cessation of this season.

Hayward is one of several star Swans still without a deal beyond 2024, with the New South Wales club hoping to continue their signing run after recently having midfielder James Rowbottom recommit for a further four years.

Reigning best and fairest winner Errol Gulden, flanker Oliver Florent and key forward Logan McDonald are also unsigned for next season, with Hayward the only one of the quartet under a restricted free agency band.

The South Australian has recently been tied to the Crows, who are said to be keen on luring the Swans forward back to Adelaide via free agency.

The 25-year-old told 9 News his situation is currently uncertain, but his parents may have some say.

"My manager looks after all that," Hayward said when questioned on his future.

"If he's got any news for me [then] he'll give me a buzz.

"I've got mum in my ear (asking to come home). Dad not so much [for] Port, he was a big Crows fan growing up.

"Mum and Dad live just across the road, so it's not far. It's good to see people you don't get to see as much."

With Hayward a restricted free agent, the Swans will have the power to match any rival contract offer if they choose to do so. A match offer would then force the bidding club to secure a trade for his signature.

Prior to Round 4, the Crows held Picks 4, 36, 42 and 60 for this year's National Draft.

Hayward and the Swans will take on West Coast in Mt Barker on Saturday afternoon for their Gather Round clash.
