North Melbourne reportedly emerge as frontrunners in race to poach West Coast’s Andrew Gaff

North Melbourne has reportedly emerged as the primary contender to pry highly sought-after midfielder Andrew Gaff from West Coast.
Gaff looms as the highest-profile player on the free agent market, with the 26-year-old yet to recommit to the Eagles.
According to a report in The Herald Sun, North Melbourne is the most likely Victorian club in the hunt for Gaff’s services, with a long-term offer on the table worth around $1.2 million per year.
Gaff would likely have to take considerably less money across a long-term deal if he were to remain at West Coast.
Essendon is reportedly out of the running for Gaff’s services despite rumoured interest.
Gaff is set to return to WA in the coming days after spending more than a week in Victoria following his tribunal hearing for his hit on Andrew Brayshaw, which resulted in an eight-week suspension.
The midfielder caught up with Brayshaw and brought flowers for his mother Debra during a 30-minute exchange to clear the air earlier this week.
West Coast has a fight on its hands to retain the services of both Gaff and Scott Lycett following the re-signing of Jeremy McGovern on a bumper deal last month.
