Brad Crouch’s manager has revealed Richmond enquired about the Adelaide midfielder “out of courtesy”.
Crouch was linked to the Tigers, which forced the conversation to occur, but the speculation was quickly watered down.
“They (Richmond) called out of courtesy because his name (Crouch) was linked with them…they didn’t initiate any conversation,” Alex McDonald told SEN Breakfast.
“He is contracted for another couple years. I’ve been in contact with the club (Adelaide), everyone is fine there.
“I think what happens at this time of year as we all know is they are players who have been starved of opportunity, been injured, or there’s a go-home factor.
“Sometimes there is a nice fit, players names pop up from time to time and they get spoken about.
“To the best of my knowledge, Brad is not going anywhere.
“He is really happy over there, lives with his brother, really excited about next year.”
Crouch didn’t play a game this season due to injury.
