The race for Tom Lynch's signature is heating up

GOLD Coast co-captain Tom Lynch has met with Collingwood for the second time in two weeks as he edges closer to making a decision on his future.

Less than a fortnight after meeting with coach Nathan Buckley, Lynch was joined by player manager Robbie D'Orazio and Pies list boss Ned Guy for more than an hour at his family's property in Blairgowrie on Monday.

The latest meeting comes as Lynch continues to weigh up his football future while recovering from season-ending knee surgery.

After being alerted to Channel Nine cameras, Guy's car was moved to a side street, where he was forced to jump a fence in order to exit the property.

Lynch, a restricted free agent at season's end, is expected to return to the Gold Coast in coming days to meet with Suns' officials.

Buckley told the program last week that he had personally met Lynch "a while back" and could see the forward fitting into his team's structures "really well".

"To be transparent, I think more clubs these days are proactive about improving their lists and about wanting to give themselves the best chance to contend, not just in this season but in seasons beyond," he said.

"We make no apologies for being a club that wants to be as competitive as we possibly can in the future."
