Gold Coast Chairman Tony Cochrane has clarified his club’s position surrounding Collingwood midfielder Adam Treloar.
With star netballer Kim Ravaillion, Treloar’s fiancé, set to join the Queensland Firebirds and the Magpies seemingly looking to offload the midfielder’s contract, the Suns emerged as the logical candidate.
Brisbane ruled themselves out of the Treloar race on Wednesday afternoon and while Cochrane confirmed the Suns are interested, he said the 27-year-old appears to be set on staying in Victoria.
“I think that every team in the country will have a crack,” Cochrane told SEN SA Breakfast.
“We’ve put a lot of work in the last few years in making sure we’ve got the right list and people that want to be at our club and people that want to go on the journey with us.
“Clearly and obviously he wants to stay in Melbourne, so we’re not going to get into a situation where we try and force a bloke to come and play for us. That’s a disaster. That doesn’t work for the club or the individual.
“Until Adam works out what he wants to do, we’re passengers just sitting on the fence with keen interest.
“He’s got to want to come and move to the Gold Coast for us to be interested.”
Treloar is contracted until the end of 2025 on a back-ended deal reportedly worth close to $900,000.
