Has Hall just told us he's out of Gold Coast?

– Glenn McFarlane

GOLD Coast midfielder Aaron Hall has given the strongest indication yet he will be latest player to join the Suns' exodus – and potentially join North Melbourne – with a cryptic Instagram post this morning.

The out-of-contract Hall uploaded a picture of his boarding pass from the Gold Coast to Melbourne, complete with a dancing gif as part of the post.

It seems certain he will join high-profile free agent Tom Lynch, and potentially the contracted Steven May, as Suns players on the move from the club.

Hall, 27, has long been linked to North Melbourne, and seems a perfect fit for the Roos who are seeking outside run.

AFL trade whispers: Aaron Hall flies to Melbourne as meeting with Kangaroos looms

GOLD Coast’s Aaron Hall will meet with North Melbourne as early as Friday after the speedy midfielder uploaded a picture of a Melbourne-bound boarding pass to social media.

Hall, out of contract at season’s end, is almost certain to leave the Suns at season’s end, along with Tom Lynch and, possibly, Steven May.

The 27-year-old uploaded a cryptic Instagram story on Friday morning, which included a picture of his Gold Coast-to-Melbourne plane ticket along with a dancing GIF image in the bottom right-hand corner.


It means Hall could tour Arden St as early as Friday morning.

The Kangaroos in recent weeks have been most heavily linked to Hall, who managed only six games in 2018 after being dropped by coach Stuart Dew and suffering a pectoral injury just after the Suns’ bye.

With the Roos desperate for some outside run, Hall seems like a perfect fit.

Hall isn’t the only outside midfielder that has been linked to North in recent time.

The Kangaroos are set to land Port Adelaide wingman Jared Polec, while they also have the biggest offer in front of impending star free agent Andrew Gaff.

Sydney defender Nic Newman, who’s renowned for his outside run, reportedly met with the Kangaroos earlier this week.

IT'S HAPPENING!



AARON Hall toured North Melbourne's headquarters on Friday morning, with the uncontracted Gold Coast midfielder edging closer to a move to the Kangaroos.

AFL.com.au understand Hall was introduced to members of the club's football department at Arden Street and is scheduled to undergo a medical examination later in the day.

The talented 27-year-old is on the club's extensive wish list ahead of next month's NAB AFL Trade Period, having fallen out of favour with Suns coach Stuart Dew throughout the year.

He played just six games, failing to return to the side after he was injured in round 11.

As Hall is not a free agent, a trade would need to be negotiated between the two clubs. The Kangaroos are currently in possession of picks 10, 28, 39, 53 and 64.

The Tasmanian-born midfielder has played 103 AFL games. He was recruited to Gold Coast as a rookie in 2011 and enjoyed a stellar 2016 campaign, averaging 27.8 disposals.

Hall's impending recruitment will bolster North Melbourne's desire to add more outside run this summer, with the club set on another significant off-season.

The club is already well placed to secure Port Adelaide wingman Jared Polec, while it also met with Sydney defender Nic Newman earlier this week.

The Kangaroos are also believed to be leading the race for star West Coast free agent Andrew Gaff, should the Victorian native elect to return home at season's end.

St Bill has just informed me that he is flying from the Gold Coast to Melbourne so he's going to end up at the Melbourne Football Club, seems we have come to the party too late.
No cafe, now towels and now no airstrip at Arden street.

And we wonder why we miss targets?
