Stengle, 19, played just two games across two years for Richmond after being recruited to the club as a rookie. However, he failed to break into the senior team in 2018.

The 172cm forward is originally from South Australia, playing his junior football for Woodville-West Torrens, and had requested a trade back to Adelaide earlier in the month.

AFL.com.au reported in September that the Crows had Stengle on their radar.

Crows general manager of list management and strategy Justin Reid was thrilled to add another dimension to their forward line.

"Tyson adds a bit of speed and goal sense and complements what our other forwards already offer," Reid said.

"We look forward to him joining us for the start of pre-season training."

Richmond’s general manager of football Neil Balme thanked Stengle for his time at the Tigers.

"We believe Tyson has an exciting future ahead of him and offered him a new contract to stay at Richmond," Balme said.

"Whilst we are disappointed to see him leave, he has made lifelong friends at Richmond and we understand his decision to return to South Australia."
