Darcy Moore has signed a new two-year contract valued at around $ 800,000 per season.
Collingwood had been hugely confident for months that his Allaustralian defender would sign again – and it came to fruition just days after the club’s embarrassing semi-final defeat.
The timing reflects Moore’s decision to re-sign in early October 2018. Given all-season speculation, he let his football do the talking and was rewarded with a two-year extension the week after Collingwood’s Grand Final loss to West Coast.

In many ways, history repeated itself in 2020, although the next time Moore leaves the contract, he will be a restricted free agent and have more influence over his future. He has proven twice that he can play good football in a contract year.Over the past 24 months, Sydney and the Western Bulldogs have been two clubs with different levels of interest, but insiders who claim during this season were not going anywhere.

Moore’s signature is a box for list manager Ned Guy, who must now negotiate deals for Jordan De Goey, Josh Daicos and Brodie Mihocek and then try to keep the list stronger.
De Goey’s future depends on finances, with the club and player more than $ 200,000 apart. De Goey is also keen to play more time in midfield. That year he spent 20 percent of the games in clinches, compared to 22 percent in 2019.
Foxfooty.com.au understands that De Goey refused to sign again during his injury because he believed he could add to his worth if he returned from his release.

Aside from an on-site best performance against Gold Coast towards the end of the season, the tough striker was only fair in Round 18 and the first two weeks of the finals, despite scoring a crucial goal against West Coast to help the Magpies upset Adam Simpsons men.
He is seen more as a match winner than a consistent performer, which is why the Pies cannot meet his significant financial demands.

De Goey is also wondering whether to finally appoint a manager. Earlier this year, Ralph Carr, Liam Pickering, and the Hemisphere Management Group were the prime contenders for his services, where agents Alex McDonald and Julian Petracca met with him.
There is little doubt that Daicos will sign again, although a lack of clarity about list size and total player payments has delayed an official announcement.
Mihocek has had a stellar season and rivals are circling but Magpies are confident they can secure him.
