Geelong has advised Charlie Constable that he will not be offered a contract for 2022 and will become delisted free agent.

Constable played 12 AFL games and booted six goals since debuting against Collingwood in the opening round of the 2019 season. He finished third in the Cats VFL best and fairest in 2021 and earned a rising star nomination in 2019.

If no other club signs Constable, there remains a chance the Cats will rookie list him.

“We have had open dialogue with Charlie over the past two years in regards to him looking for greater opportunity at another club,” Geelong’s general manager of football Simon Lloyd said.

“We believe Charlie is a good player, but we have a number of players that play a similar role. We are hoping that allowing Charlie to become a free agent may help him find a new club. We would like to thank Charlie for his significant contribution on and off the field. He has been a strong leader, he is a quality person and has been an exceptional clubman over time at Geelong.”
