Talks about Adam Treloar’s future at Collingwood has unsettled the midfielder, reports SEN Chief Sports reporter Sam Edmund.

Treloar has been linked to a move to Gold Coast after news broke that his partner and netballer Kim Ravaillion signed for the Queensland Firebirds for next year.

Treloar publicly committed his future to the Magpies on Fox Footy’s AFL 360, but Edmund reports that there is a “layer of anxiety” over the fact the Magpies considered trading him just months after agreeing to a new contract.

“There’s a layer of anxiety there for him about what he hopes is just media chatter and nothing of substance,” Edmund said on AFL Nation. 

“We can say as absolute fact that the Pies considered trading him to Gold Coast just months after signing him to that lucrative contract extension and the club were initially hesitant when they were told that his partner Kim Ravaillion had planned to move to Brisbane without Adam.

“Treloar is contracted until the end of 2025, it’s not a small [deal] and it’s back-ended too so he’s done the right thing by the club to back-end the contract and accept less initially.

“If he is to be traded, it’ll be because the Pies have forced the issue and really got in the trenches to make it happen.”

Treloar signed a four-year extension to his contract which was originally set to expire in 2021.

The deal is heavily back-ended to create space in the salary cap for the Magpies to re-sign the likes of Darcy Moore, Jordan De Goey and Brody Mihocek.

On Friday, the Magpies announced they re-signed Darcy Moore and Josh Daicos until the end of 2022.
