Jack Riewoldt is keen to sign a new contract with the Tigers

RICHMOND forward Jack Riewoldt wants to remain a Tiger and for his new contract to be finalised as soon as possible.

The 24-year-old is one of a raft of experienced Tigers poised to come out of contract at the end of the season, with captain Trent Cotchin and midfielder Dustin Martin other headline acts.

Riewoldt said his management group Strategic and manager Liam Pickering were sorting it out after the sudden resignation of football manager Craig Cameron in February delayed proceedings.

"I think any player wants to get their contract [talks] over and done with and their future set in stone as soon as possible," Riewoldt said on Wednesday.

"I think the process with all of our contracts has been put back a little bit by Craig Cameron leaving so abruptly and really having to fill that void.

"I think we've just been caught behind the ball with Craig leaving so that will happen as soon as it happens and we'll sort it out and move on from there.

"It's definitely no distraction for us because we're excited about how we're playing."

Cameron, who left the Tigers to join the horse racing industry, was replaced by Dan Richardson, a former associate director of sports marketing and management company Elite Sports Properties.

While Riewoldt, Cotchin and Martin are the big guns needing new deals, a number of other Tigers including Dylan Grimes, Brandon Ellis, Jake Batchelor, Luke McGuane, Alex Rance and Reece Conca are in the same position.

Riewoldt said the process to secure the list would unfold in the near future.

"No doubt we'll be catching up on those sorts of things in the coming months and really ticking it off because we've got some young guys coming out of contract that are building in the right direction and they're the players that we're looking to re-sign."

Jack Riewoldt is a forward in NAB AFL Fantasy. He averaged 80.18 points in 2012. Register your team at our AFL Fantasy Hub.
