North Melbourne ruckman Todd Goldstein has dismissed talks that he could be at a new club in 2020.
The former All-Australian was linked with St Kilda by The Age, but Goldstein said he’s learned to ignore the rumour-mongering.
“When you don’t have a contract for next year and you’re a free agent, that obviously sparks the conversation,” Goldstein told SEN Breakfast.
“I go back to a few years ago now, last time I came out of contract I was apparently getting a medical in Perth and I had just dropped my kids off in Pascoe Vale.
“You learn pretty quickly to not listen to the rumours too much.
“I’m really focused on what I’m doing at the moment and that’s why we have managers to worry about that side of things.”
Goldstein admits it might take a while for him to learn his fate for 2020.
“I think anyone in any job would like to know as soon as possible, but obviously I understand the period of time at the footy club and the board came out and said they’re going to do a review and that takes time,” he said.
“I’m not too stressed about it. I’m pretty confident I’m playing footy that deserves to get a job and all I can do now is continue to keep playing that sort of footy.”
North Melbourne takes on the GWS at Blundstone Arena on Sunday afternoon.
