Several AFL clubs have a strong interest in signing Tom Langdon, according to the Collingwood defender's manager Scott Lucas.
Langdon, who received a Norm Smith medal vote from Sydney coach John Longmire after an impressive display in this year's grand final, is yet to re-sign with the Magpies.
The 24-year-old remains in contract discussions with Collingwood, who indicated on Monday they're hopeful of finalising a deal this week.
But Langdon is also keeping his options open, having met with the Swans on Tuesday.
"We're required, obliged and need to do what is best by our client. In that sense it was a matter of having some discussions with all clubs," Lucas told Macquarie Sports Radio.
"Several have expressed a strong interest.
"We've looked at that further with them while at the same time, continuing to work with Collingwood."
Lucas noted the nature of the off-season frenzy, in which one deal or trade request can have a domino effect around the league, meant it would be imprudent to limit negotiations to a single club.
"There's a lot of balls in the air at this time of year," he said.
"Use (Dylan) Shiel as an example. The clubs that missed out on him will have contingencies in place or players they now want to pursue.
"Your player, who could be a priority somewhere, now gets bumped down the list."
