Small forward Tyson Stengle wants to become a Cat in 2022.

The former Richmond and Adelaide goalsneak wants to be reunited with mentor Eddie Betts, who last week joined Geelong in a development role.

Stengle was traded from Richmond to Adelaide and was then sacked from the Crows following a series of indiscretions, but was a standout player for SANFL premiers Woodville-West Torrens where he booted three goals in the grand final against Glenelg.

Stengle played two games for Richmond and 14 for the Crows.

He is still on the Crows list, but could join the Cats as a delisted free agent after the trade period, which ends at 7.30pm on Wednesday.
