Sydney veteran Sam Reid is reportedly in line to be delisted by the Swans before being selected by the club at next month's Rookie Draft.

Reid is among the last few players the Swans are yet to confirm the future of, with the 31-year-old joined by forward Sam Wicks and rookie Jaiden Magor in being yet to earn new deals.

2023 saw Reid deal with a season-ending hamstring injury in May, keeping the veteran forward out of John Longmire's side for the entirety of the season after requiring surgery.

Reid's last game at senior level came in last year's grand final loss to Geelong, with the long-serving Swan earning one-year extensions over the last few seasons given his age and injury battles.

The premiership Swan is now set to add a further 12 months to his Sydney tenure but will be delisted by the club first, with reporting that Reid will be re-listed through the 2023 Rookie Draft.

Clubs are able to assist their list builds by delisting and then selecting players through the Rookie Draft, moving them from their primary list to open spots for incoming National Draft recruits.

The Swans used the 2021 Rookie Draft to re-select midfielder Lewis Taylor following his delisting that same off-season.

The move for Reid comes after a busy trade and free agency window for Sydney, who acquired Brodie Grundy, Taylor Adams, Joel Hamling and James Jordon through the player movement period.

The quartet of list moves meant Reid was required to wait until after the deadline to learn where his future in the red and white sat.

The Swans bid farewell to wingman Dylan Stephens to North Melbourne during the trade period, while Ryan Clarke, Will Gould, Hugo Hall-Kahan, Cameron Owen, Lachie Rankin and Marc Sheather were delisted.

Key forward Lance Franklin, defender Paddy McCartin and ruckman Tom Hickey all announced their retirements this year.
