FORMER No.10 draft pick Nathan Freeman has been delisted by St Kilda after just two AFL games.

AFL.com.au understands the 23-year-old has been told he won't be required at Moorabbin next season.

The Saints were yet to officially announce the news on Tuesday night. It's understood the club's initial list management conversations with players will be completed on Wednesday. 

An Instagram post from Freeman later on Tuesday night thanked the club for his "wild ride". 

ON THE MOVE All 2018's retirements and delistings

The injury-plagued 23-year-old finally made his debut in round 20 and was dropped after a fortnight.

Originally drafted to Collingwood in 2013, he was traded to St Kilda at the end of 2015 despite his persistent hamstring injuries. 

He battled through multiple hamstring injuries at both clubs, and an AC joint injury halted his VFL campaign earlier this year.

Freeman was embraced by teammates when coach Alan Richardson told the playing group he'd finally make his debut against the Western Bulldogs in the lead up to round 20.

It’s been a wild ride, but god it’s been fun #thankyou
