ANDREW Collins is one of the Bendigo's Gold number one recruiting targets.
The highly-skilled midfielder was delisted by Carlton on Wednesday and Bendigo Gold coach Aussie Jones is keen to talk to the 24-year-old.
"Obviously, we as a club still have some issues to get through to make sure we're around, but we're certainly keen to see if Andy is interested,'' Jones said.
"I've only met Andy a couple of times, but all I hear is good reports about him. Everyone tells me we've got to get him involved at our club."
Collins played 36 AFL games for Richmond and Carlton.
