Hoping the Suns monitor him closely over the remainder of the season especially if he starts playing again... would help alleviate some of the likely loss of Jacky Martin. Maybe some of Martin’s coin and a decent contract length could entice him north?

Possibly, I doubt our contract offer to him will be much more than the minimum but we would drive a hard bargain at the trade table as we have put a lot of time and effort into him without any real reward yet.

What driving a hard bargain?

Late 2nd would be the most you could hope for with his injury history.

No one will pay that. He is worthless with his injury history
Not far from the truth.

A late 3rd maybe tops.

Could see a club using him as medium forward and basically backing off the heavy training and match day loads you need to play midfield. Basically manage him in an attempt to get him fit enough to let his skills and natural talent add to the team.

The guy can play and its just disappointing for him he can't get a decent run at it.

What I mean is when GFC players are out of contract we usually move them to where they want to go for a nominal pick or pick swap without any fuss. If Nakia wanted to go I don't think we would be so accomodating. You are right we wouldn't get much for him.

In his favour he hasn't even turned 23 yet. If by good luck or good management he was able to get his body right he still has a lot of footy potentially ahead of him.

Just watch the Hawks circle this guy. They need an injection of youth and have a bloody good record on the medical front. Cats fans would not enjoy this at all.

Gold Coast would be better.

Wouldnt mind the Eagles to nab him as steak knives as part of the Kelly trade.

If someone else can get his body right then good in them, I just want to see him play consistently. Wish Menzel has kicked 30 goals already at Sydney and was killing it. Who the team is doesn’t make any difference really.

I just don't think the Cats would treat Nakia as a steak knives proposition. He is worth more to Geelong than any team would be willing to pay for him.
