Grand Final

Gillon defends free agency 1:13


The dad of Collingwood forward Jordan De Goey has reportedly told a pair of rival clubs his son will be staying in black and white.

The 24-year-old, who is set to face court on October 30 on a sexual assault charge dating back to 2015, is out of contract and believed to be chasing up to $1 million a year on a new deal.

However lacking suitors, it appears De Goey will stay at the Magpies for two more seasons, allowing him to reach free agency and work out a new contract with either Collingwood or another club at that point.

"It's my understanding that Jordan De Goey's management, in particular his dad, has told two clubs I know this week that he'll stay at Collingwood for two years in the lead-up to his free agency," Tom Browne said on Seven News.

"So unless someone swoops - Carlton certainly didn't come knocking as De Goey perhaps would have liked - that means De Goey's now highly likely to stay at Collingwood and recommit for two years leading up to his free agency.

"His dad, his manager, certainly indicating that this week."
