Report: Bennell to meet with Victorian club


Injury-riddled mid/forward Harley Bennell will meet with a Victorian club later this month, according to a Herald Sun report.

Bennell was cut loose by Fremantle in June after being plagued by calf issues during his four years at the club.

The No.2 pick in the 2010 draft played just two games with the Dockers.

According to the report, specialists have identified a tendon pushing onto a nerve in both of Bennell's calves is the cause of the problem.

Bennell is adamant he still has plenty of good footy left in him and is determined to get his body right.

Importantly, surgeons are confident he will be ready to hit the track by November.

The 26-year-old and his manager Colin Young will meet with officials from a Victorian club in three weeks to provide an update on his physical and mental status.

"Harley will meet with a club in the next two to three weeks to see where his mind is at and where his body is at," a figure close to Bennell told the Herald Sun.

"He believes he can do it."

Bennell started his career at Gold Coast, where he played 81 games in four years.
