JUST over two years after being shipped back to Adelaide as part of the deal to get Patrick Dangerfield to Geelong, Dean Gore will again wear the Hoops.

The 21-year-old has signed with the Cats VFL team after being delisted by the Crows without playing an AFL game.

The versatile Gore originally arrived at Kardinia Park via the 2014 National Draft, where he was taken with pick No.55 from Sturt.

He was limited to just 10 appearances in the VFL in 2015, with hamstring and shoulder issues impacting on his only season at Geelong.

“We are very excited to get Gorey back to the club after he made such a good impression in 2015.” coach Shane O’Bree said.

Joining Gore as confirmed additions for Geelong are former North Ballarat captain Luke Kiel, reigning NEAFL MVP Jordan Keras and former Adelaide key position player Sam Siggins.

Kiel, who won two best-and-fairest awards in 83 games with the now-departed Roosters, will fill a role in defence, while Keras will provide the Cars with an inside presence in the midfield.

Siggins, who spent three years with the Crows before departing in late 2015, can played both forward and back and also pinch-hit in the ruck.

He finished runner-up in the Tasmanian State League best-and-fairest, the Alistair Lynch Medal, and made the TSL Team of the Year after a dominant season with Clarence.
