Victorian club circling Jeremy McGovern with big deal

West Coast defender Jeremy McGovern is already the subject of a mega-deal, with a Victorian club reportedly offering the free agent a six-year deal worth over $7 million.

The Herald Sun believe at least three Melbourne clubs are chasing the 25-year-old, with one club in particular already moving ahead of the pack with a deal worth $1.2 million for all six years.

The Eagles are keen to retain McGovern’s services, with a report last month suggesting they had offered their star defender a five-year deal worth $4 million.

McGovern is one of the stars entering free agency at the end of the season, and will be the arguably the biggest fish in the pool behind Gold Coast co-captain Tom Lynch, who is also out of contract at season’s end.
