First-round pick attracting interest from Victorian clubs

Miles Bergman is attracting interest from a number of Victorian clubs, reports SEN’s: Michelangelo Rucci.

The 20-year-old has found himself in the senior team throughout the last several weeks after recovering from shoulder surgery and playing SANFL earlier in the year.

He was a first-round draft pick out of the Sandringham Dragons back in 2019. Despite signing a two-year extension back in 2020 and with a year to run on his current deal, Rucci predicts he’ll be tempted by a move home.

“We know there’s going to be an enormous trade market, but it’s not just going to be players falling out of contract,” Rucci told SEN SA’s The Run Home.

“Miles Bergman is under contract until 2023, the end of next season. But he has – what I’ve been told – fair interest from a few Victorian clubs to lure him back to Melbourne.

“He was a first-round draft pick, number 14 for Port Adelaide in 2019, has a Rising Star nomination last year and had a difficult past 12 months with COVID.

“If he gets tempted to move, Port are going to have some interesting talks with clubs about what they want back.

“I don’t think (he will be at Port next year).”

Bergman’s best game of the season came against Melbourne in Round 18 when he booted two goals and took eight marks from 16 disposals.

The Power are already up against it to keep wingman Karl Amon from departing Alberton at the end of the year, however the club is reported to have expressed an interest in out-of-contract Bulldog Josh Dunkley.
