Lyon urges Demons to go "all in" on star 2020 free agent


Melbourne has been strongly linked to landing Ed Langdon from Fremantle and Adam Tomlinson from GWS in the upcoming trade period, but Garry Lyon has urged them to save their money on the latter.

Lachie Whitfield looms as the biggest free agent of the 2020 class and Lyon wants the Dees to go “all in” on him.

“Here’s some unsolicited advice to the Demons. Save your money,” he told SEN Breakfast.

“Save your money with Tomlinson and go all in on Whitfield. All in.

“Get everything out.”

SEN Breakfast newsman Sam Edmund believes the Dees will end up landing both Langdon and Tomlinson.

“We’ve said all along that Ed Langdon will get to Melbourne. The Langdon camp has now done all of their due diligence, they met all the other interested clubs and there were a few, but he likes the Dees and the feeling is mutual,” he said.

“Melbourne plan to play him on the wing and hopefully they play the versatile Adam Tomlinson on the other wing.”
