AFL trade period: Hawks won’t pursue Ladhams, Finlayson could be headed to Port

Geelong’s list chief Stephen Wells has outlined the club’s interest in both Jonathon Ceglar and Tyson Stengle.

But the status of Darcy Fort was central to any moves on the Hawks big man, Well said.

“The reason we made some inquiries about Jonathon is because there was some interest in Darcy Fort from another club,” Wells said on SEN.

“We have made some inquiries but that would all be dependent on whether Darcy Fort stays at the Cats and that’s still to be worked through.

“It’s been public or reported that Brisbane have shown some interest in Darcy and that’s right. If I had to guess right now, I reckon that Darcy will still be at Geelong next year.”

Wells confirmed the Cats were weighing up the pros and cons of former Richmond and Adelaide small forward Stengle.

“We think Tyson’s had a terrific period with Woodville-West Torrens. He’s been a good player in the SANFL all year including a good performance in the premiership winning team.

“We do have some interest in Tyson and he’s very lucky he’s got a man like Eddie [former AFL player Eddie Betts, who is set to join Geelong’s coaching panel] in his corner.

“We haven’t committed to him yet, but it’s not just us that says we want Tyson. He’ll have to make that decision himself in conjunction with his management team. Tyson’s in a terrific position where he can have a bit of control over the decision that he makes and where he has his next opportunity at AFL level.

“We’d be pleased if Tyson ended up with Geelong.”
