Triple M's Hot Breakfast footy reporter Tom Browne says Western Bulldogs ruckman Jordan Roughead is set to be picked up by a fellow Victorian club.

BROWNE BREAKS THE NEWS:



Roughead is out of contract and has been left in limbo, with the restricted free agent not offered a deal by any rival as of yet.

West Coast had courted the premiership player, flying him to Perth for a medical, but instead traded for Tom Hickey to bolster their ruck stocks in the absence of Nic Naitanui and departure of Scott Lycett.

It leaves Roughead's future with a question mark.

But Browne believes one Victorian club is set to answer that question and offer him a new home.

"I understand Collingwood will offer Bulldog Jordan Roughead a lifeline," he said.

"That deal to be announced in coming days."

With the free agency period over, Roughead will need a trade to find a new home.
