North Melbourne has confirmed its interest in out of contract Cat, Darcy Lang.

List manager, Michael McMahon confirmed to the club’s podcast show NMFC On Air, Lang had toured the Arden Street headquarters on Tuesday with his manager, Scott Lucas, and was ‘a player of interest’.

“We’ve had some conversations with Darcy and his management, but there’s still a bit to work through there throughout the trade period,” McMahon said.

Just 21, Lang has played 44 games for Geelong since being drafted with pick 16 in 2013. He played 10 games at Kardinia Park in 2017 averaging 16 disposals and reportedly wants to play more time in the midfield.

“Darcy is a player of interest for us. He’s out of contract at the moment,” McMahon added.

“[There are] no guarantees that Darcy will end up a North Melbourne player but that’s ongoing.”

It’s understood Geelong is open to trade Lang to another club to allow him more opportunities, but Geelong list manager Stephen Wells has also said on the record the Cats will offer him another contract should a deal fail to get through.
