Jack Higgins won’t play for Richmond next year.
Both the Tigers and Higgins are in agreement that his future lies at another club in 2021.
Higgins is contracted for next year, so a trade would need to be struck that the Tigers would accept.
But the 21-year-old small forward wasn’t able to cement his spot in Damien Hardwick’s best 22 this season.
It’s understood Higgins has settled on a Melbourne-based club for next year.
But it won’t be Carlton despite the Blues’ desire to land a younger small forward.
Higgins burst onto the scene in 2018 before brain surgery last year threatened his career after playing the first 13 games of 2019.
He was taken by the Tigers with pick 17 in the 2017 national draft.
