THE CROWS LOOK AT THE BIRDHOUSE
The Magpies are yet to offer the 19-year-old a new deal, having played just one senior game under Craig McRae in 2022.
It comes after Poulter impressed in his debut season in 2021, playing 11 games in a campaign where the Magpies prioritized developing young talent and finished 17th in the table.
Poulter was drafted to Collingwood from Woodville West Torrens with pick 30 in the 2020 draft – the same draft that saw Ollie Henry, Finlay McCreary and Bo McCreery selected by the Pies.
Adelaide swingman Billy Frampton is reportedly set to request a trade to the Magpies in next month’s trade period.
DEES TRIO FACE UNCERTAIN FUTURE AMID COMPETING INTERESTS
Melbourne free agent Jaden Hunt faces uncertain AFL future amid level of interest from West Coast Eagles in accordance with AFL Media Callum Toomey.
Hunt, who played 20 games in 2021 but failed to win the club’s premiership after suffering a season-ending ankle injury, has made a further 20 senior appearances this year.
Since Hunt is an unrestricted free agent, he would be worth nothing to a rival club.
Toomey also revealed on SEN that rivals are interested in Toby Bedford, who has been linked with Essendon, North Melbourne and GWS, and expected clubs to keep an eye on Adam Tomlinson as the pair’s Melbourne fortunes hang in the balance.
“Clubs are chasing Toby Bedford, who the Dees want to keep and have offered him a contract,” Toomey said.
“Another one to keep an eye on is Adam Tomlinson. Clubs could look at him given he has fallen into Melbourne’s key back line.
“He’s got two years to do a good deal, so the club has to take it on in terms of money as well.”
Out-of-contract Demons pair Jake Melksham and Michael Hibberd are expected to be on new contracts for 2023.
