Victorian clubs interested in Sydney ruckman Toby Nankervis

Sydney ruckman Toby Nankervis is reportedly attracting interest from at least two Victorian clubs.

The Swans big man is out of contract and has failed to win a regular spot in the senior side this season, managing just nine games.

Even in the absence of Kurt Tippett, who missed eight games during the middle of the season, fellow ruckmen Sam Naismith and Callum Sinclair were preferred over the 21-year-old.

Nankervis has played a total of 12 games over three seasons at the Swans. reports that Richmond is keen on Nankervis, however, may face competition from the Western Bulldogs, as they weigh up whether or not to search for a replacement for the outgoing Will Minson.

Minson announced on Wednesday night that his time at the Whitten Oval is up after 191 games in 13 years at the Kennel.
