Swans pair floated as potential Magpies trade options instead of Daniel McStay

Collingwood appears the likely destination for Daniel McStay should he depart Brisbane at year’s end.

The Magpies have reportedly offered the Lions free agent a five-year deal worth close to $600,000 a season.

McStay has kicked 16 goals in as many appearances this season and hasn’t troubled the scorers in five of his last six games.

The reported figure Collingwood is prepared to offer McStay has raised some eyebrows within AFL circles.

Dermott Brereton has floated two fringe Swans players the Magpies could look at instead of the Lions forward.

“I would query why you would put so many dollars in a player into your list,” Brereton told SEN’s The Run Home.

“They’ve probably got the answers.

“He will stand under the ball. He’s brave as they can be, Dan McStay, he will take punishment.

“I just mentioned his name, Hayden McLean and Joel Amartey, one of those two boys, who have proven to be very capable, if they all stay fit in Sydney, they won’t play a game.

“I would look at getting one of those.

“It’ll be one-third of the price of a Dan McStay and you might be able to cultivate and want him to groom into what you want.”

McLean, who is contracted for 2023, has played eight games in 2022, kicking six goals.

The 23-year-old has made 30 appearances since debuting in 2019.

Amartey is also contracted for next season. The 22-year-old has played six games this year.
