WYLIE Buzza's time at Geelong has ended, with the key forward not being offered a contract for 2020.

The 23-year-old played nine senior games for the Cats after being taken with pick 69 in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft from Queensland's Redland football club in the NEAFL.

The fan favourite's most recent AFL match came in the round 17 loss to Adelaide in 2018.
