NORWOOD premiership coach Nathan Bassett is expected to join the Gold Coast Suns within the next 48 hours.

Bassett, who has met with Suns coaching director Malcolm Blight, is expected to fill one of the vacancies left by new Power coach Ken Hinkley and and former Magpie Shane O'Bree, who has returned to Melbourne.

"There's nothing to report yet - we'll see what happens," Bassett said today.

On Monday, Gold Coast football manager Marcus Ashcroft confirmed the Suns' were interested in the former Crows defender.

"We've had brief chats with Nathan," Ashcroft said.

"We think Nathan has got a lot to offer. We're still looking for another assistant coach."

With few AFL clubs searching for assistant coaches, Bassett's path to the Suns became more certain once the Redlegs broke their 15-year SANFL premiership drought on October 7.

Bassett's strength of being able to communicate, and develop, younger players is viewed as a good fit for the Suns.

The 35-year-old - who played 210 AFL games between 1998 and 2008 - has previously expressed his willingness to move his family interstate should an ideal opportunity arise.

"I have got to go to a club where I am going to learn some stuff and that is the main thing," Bassett told The Advertiser last month.

"I want to be a better coach and I want to be around people I think I can learn the most from."
