Patrick Dangerfield reveals he's a “big fan” of Cats target Jack Bowes

“I think he would look very, very good in the hoops.”

Geelong superstar Patrick Dangerfield believes Cats trade target Jack Bowes would look “very good” in the blue and white hoops.

Bowes, 24, has played 78 games for Gold Coast but looks set to move clubs this off-season as part of a salary dump trade along with pick no. 7 in this year’s draft.

With Geelong considered the front-runners for the Sun’s services, Channel 7’s Mitch Cleary revealed that Dangerfield could have a big say in getting the deal across the line given how much he rates Bowes.

“I can (see him moving to Geelong),” Cleary said on AFL Trade Radio.

“I think they’ve been into Jack Bowes for a little while now, he is managed by Connors Sports management.

“They also look after Patty Dangerfield, and I’m told Patty Dangerfield is a big fan of Jack Bowes.

“There’s not many players that have the power at the negotiating table like Patty Dangerfield.

“He helped with the (Luke) Dahlhaus move, he helped with the (Josh) Jenkins move, I wouldn’t be surprised if he willed his power and got this one over the line.”

In response to Cleary’s report, Dangerfield confirmed that he is in fact a big fan of Bowes, adding that he reminds him of one of his star premiership teammates.

“I don’t know how Mitch Cleary got ahold of the information he did, but I’m a big fan,” Dangerfield said on SEN Mornings.

“I’ve watched him a heck of a lot this year, to be honest, and from previous seasons as well.

“I think he would look very, very good in the hoops.

“He’s a bit of a taller mid, but he’s also versatile, he’s a beautiful kick, he sort of reminds me a bit of Mitch Duncan in the fact that he’s really nice by foot, he’s got good poise.

“Isn’t that the beauty of sport? We were lucky enough to win it but all of the sudden now it’s, ‘How can we get better’? Because every other team is doing the same.

“That’s the beauty of the trade period I think.”

Along with Geelong, clubs that have also been linked to a Bowes move include Essendon, Hawthorn and St Kilda.
