Jack Lonie could be headed to Collingwood

ST KILDA'S Jack Lonie is on Collingwood's radar after the out-of-contract small forward met with Magpies coach Nathan Buckley recently.

The 22-year-old is only being offered a one-year deal by the Saints despite the crafty goal sneak's impressive finish to the season that saw him kick 11 goals in the last five games of the club's poor 2018 campaign.

Lonie, who has kicked 44 goals in 50 senior games, is happy at Moorabbin, but is looking for the security of a longer-term contract.

Grand Finalist Collingwood could be prepared to offer the Dandenong Stingrays product a multi-year deal, with Carlton also enquiring about his services.

Lonie had discussions with Greater Western Sydney at the end of last season, but remained at the Saints on a 12-month contract.

Lonie was recruited with pick 41 in the 2014 NAB AFL Draft, and quickly found his feet in his debut season of 2015, playing 17 games, kicking 12 goals and earning a Rising Star nomination.
