GOLD Coast has inquired about star Collingwood midfielder Adam Treloar after his partner signed a contract to play professional netball in Queensland in 2021.
But Treloar's manager Tim Hazell was quick to put to bed any speculation.
"He is not going anywhere," Hazell told News Corp.
TRADE STATE OF PLAY Who's going, who's undecided
"He is respectful of Kimmy's career, he is excited by the opportunity and it's a one-year contract and they will manage."
The Suns were willing to trade their first pick in the NAB AFL Draft, currently No.5, for a player of Treloar's proven ability and experience.

Treloar, 27, is contracted to the Magpies until the end of the 2025 season.
His partner and the mother of their child, netballer Kim Ravaillion, intends to play for the Queensland Firebirds in the Super Netball competition in 2021.
A foundation player with Collingwood's Super Netball team since 2017, Ravaillion sat out the 2020 season as she and Treloar welcomed their first child.
"Collingwood were kept in the loop with Kimmy signing with the Firebirds and they are very supportive of the situation,"Hazell said.
"They are professional athletes with a small window."
Dew told Fox Footy on Monday night: "[Treloar's] obviously a fantastic player, but he's a contracted Collingwood player. We certainly don't see that that's changing.
"We understand where the rumours come from and we can ask the question, but as far as we know and as far as he's concerned, he's all set to prepare for next season with Collingwood."
Dew said a player of Treloar's ability and experience would fit well in the Suns' list build, but said the club would be particular with their trade targets to complement a young, talented group that includes gun forward Ben King, smooth-kicking defender Jack Lukosius and last year's No.1 pick, powerful midfielder Matt Rowell.
"We've got pick five to six in the draft and that's something that we would be open to trading if one of those types of players (became available)," Dew said.
"And purely that middle band of 25-plus, but also careful not to tip too far the other way where we become just a pension for a player as well.
"We feel like we're getting into a nice little slot and a bit of momentum that we want to make sure that who we bring in is certainly fits out needs and can hold them their spot for the right reason."
