    Harley Balic traded from Fremantle Dockers to Melbourne Demons for pick 66.


    The penultimate day of the AFL trade period is here, with still as many as ten or twenty deals waiting to be finalised. Join The Roar for all the latest AFL trade news and rumours from 9am AEDT.

    Let’s do a quick run down of the deals still in progress.

    Charlie Cameron to Brisbane is seeming more unlikely by the day. Adelaide want Dayne Zorko for him. Good luck, Crows.

    Josh Schache too is looking more likely to stay than go, with the Bulldogs and Carlton interested, but neither making a genuine play for him.

    Bryce Gibbs’ potential moves is based purely on whispers and, if it comes off, would go wildly against what all parties have said.

    Aaron Francis looks in doubt to move with neither Port or Adelaide showing a strong interest at the price Essendon would be looking for.

    Harley Balic will be traded to Melbourne probably some time today.

    Lachie Weller might be held down at Fremantle with the Dockers unwilling to consider moving him on for anything less than an exorbitant price.

    Darcy Lang could still wind up at any of North Melbourne, Carlton or the Gold Coast.

    Gary Ablett should get to Geelong by all reports, but exactly what the deal will be is something we don’t know yet.

    Brandon Matera will get to Fremantle but might have to wait for details around Lachie Weller to be finalised.

    Matthew Kennedy should get to Carlton but the exact deal at the moment appears unclear. Ditto Nathan Wilson to Fremantle.

    Andrew Swallow would be happy to go to Gold Coast and North Melbourne happy to send him there, the only question is do the Suns want him?

    Matthew Lobbe’s options aren’t as clear as they were before, with both Gold Coast and Brisbane seeming to distance themselves from the deal lately.

    Aaron Young will likely get to Gold Coast in a minor deal.

    Anthony Miles hasn’t had a clear opportunity arise from another club just yet and so might stay at Richmond instead.

    Jake Stringer’s future depends on whether the Bulldogs or Bombers blink on the offer of picks 25 and 30 before the trade period closes.
