FORMER Greater Western Sydney midfielder Tim Golds is hoping to find a new home at Collingwood after being granted permission to train with the Pies ahead of this month's NAB AFL Draft.

Last week, Golds was delisted after managing just six games for the Giants in four seasons - two in 2012, one in 2013 and three in 2014 – and never looked close to adding to his tally last season.

Former Brisbane Lions and Collingwood forward Jackson Paine will train with the Lions – he has played just 12 AFL games, six with the Magpies and six with the Lions after being taken at pick 50 in the 2011 NAB AFL Draft – as he tries to fight his way back onto the list under coach Justin Leppitsch.

Essendon has dangled lifelines in front of a trio of players it recently axed - Will Hams, Nick O'Brien and Ariel Steinberg.

O'Brien played nine matches in 2015 but just 14 in his four years at the Bombers, while Hams is likely to be rookie-listed by the club on November 27.

Port Adelaide midfielder Kane Mitchell will also try and earn back a spot on the Power's list before the draft.

Mitchell was rookie listed in 2013 after winning the 2012 Sandover Medal as the best and fairest player in the WAFL with a record-equaling 58 votes, and played 31 games over the past three seasons.

This year's NAB AFL Draft will be held in Adelaide on Tuesday November 24.
