Tom Lynch has reportedly picked Richmond as his preferred destination.
THE MID-WEEK RUB:
The Age's Michael Gleeson has reported the race for this year's hottest free agent is over, with Richmond securing the former Gold Coast forward.
The report says Hawthorn and Collingwood - believed to be the other two clubs in contention - were told they have missed out.
An official announcement has not been made as of yet.
Lynch told Gold Coast a month ago he would exercise his rights as a free agent at the end of the season, after being ruled out for the year with a PCL injury.
The Suns stripped him of the co-captaincy at the time, handing the reins to Steven May.
