COLLINGWOOD star Jordan De Goey has been charged with one count of indecent assault relating to an incident five years ago.

The Magpies confirmed the dynamite forward was charged on Saturday for a historical incident in 2015.

The club said De Goey was investigated by the AFL integrity unit and Victoria Police in 2018 but no charges were laid at the time.

The 24-year-old will remain playing and training with Collingwood during the legal process.

The Magpies will leave Victoria next week as all Melbourne-based clubs relocate due to the state’s fresh COVID-19 outbreak.

They will face Hawthorn in a round-six clash Friday night at Giants Stadium.

Collingwood say the club and De Goey won’t be commenting further about the situation.
