COLLINGWOOD has delisted Matthew Goodyear after two games in two seasons along with Greater Western Sydney recruit Tim Golds and category B rookie Darrean Wyatt.

Goodyear was pick No.48 in the 2014 NAB AFL Draft but did not have his contract renewed, despite playing in round three against St Kilda and round 11 against Port Adelaide.

All the retirements and delistings

Golds joined the Magpies as a rookie in 2016 but did not crack it for a senior game.

He had previously played six games in four seasons at Greater Western Sydney after joining the Giants as a 17-year-old access selection.

Wyatt had a basketball background and struggled to cement a spot in the VFL team that made it through to the preliminary final in 2016.

Their departure follows premiership trio Dane Swan, Brent Macaffer and Alan Toovey's retirements.

The Magpies are expected to recruit former Fremantle forward Chris Mayne as a free agent while Daniel Wells has been linked to the club.

They will also add Lachlan Keeffe and Josh Thomas as the pair return from a suspension due after a breach of the AFL's anti-doping code. 

Nathan Brown, Jack Frost and Jarrod Witts have all been linked to other clubs with decisions expected on their futures soon.
