Swans target to stay put with West Coast


Tom Barrass is set to stay put with the West Coast Eagles.

Barrass is a trade target for the Swans who are keen to lure the key defender to Sydney despite the fact he remains contracted with the Eagles.

SEN’s Tim Gossage believes the reigning John Worsfold Medallist has told the Eagles he wants to stay and be central in the club’s rebuild.

“I can confirm, take it to the bank, Tom Barrass is staying put,” Gossage said on SEN WA Breakfast.

“He will not be joining the Sydney Swans. He has four years remaining on a contract, Sydney have come hard again.

“Tom Barrass has committed to the West Coast Eagles that he wants to be a senior player in the rebuild over the next four years.

“Mark my words, it is done, it’s from his mouth. The mail was very strong out of West Coast yesterday (Tuesday) amongst the playing group that Tom Barrass has told the club he has no intention of leaving and he will remain at the West Coast Eagles.”

Barrass, 27, has played 132 games for the Eagles since debuting in 2015.

He is contracted until 2027 after signing a five-year extension in 2021 when he was under contract for 2022.
