Adelaide midfielder Brad Crouch could be on his way to Victorian, according former Port Adelaide star Kane Cornes.

Cornes reported on 3AW radio last week that Crouch has met with both North Melbourne and Hawthorn regarding a possible trade at the end of the year.

“He’s met with both Hawthorn and North Melbourne,” Cornes said.

“He’s in the SANFL, he’s a Victorian and he’s a little bit disgruntled by the fact that he hasn’t played enough footy. I don’t think he will (be at the Crows next season).”

Crouch is a highly rated midfielder, but has struggled with injuries during his short career.

The 22-year-old missed the majority of last season due to a foot injury and has only managed five games this season in the seniors.

Speaking further on the topic on Fox Footy's AFL 360 on Monday night, Cornes also said that Hawthorn appears the most likely suitor.

“I think Andrew Russell (Hawthorn fitness coach) would back himself in, as he’s done with Cyril Rioli and Shaun Burgoyne, to get his body right,” Cornes said.

“With Sam Mitchell, Jordan Lewis and Luke Hodge getting a bit older, he’d fit in nicely.”

Crouch has averaged 23 disposals, 11 kicks, 12 handballs and three marks per game in his 30 game career.
