The Tim Kelly deal is done, but there are plenty more moves still to come this AFL trade period. Follow all the action right here on The Roar from 9am (AEST).
Kelly’s move to West Coast, which for some reason included Essendon and netted Geelong a couple of first-round draft picks, had been tipped as the blockbuster move which could have dragged on right until the deadline, but instead it was the first trade to be completed in 2019.
Eddie Betts looks to be the next player on the move, the small forward set to rejoin former club Carlton. The Blues and Crows are, by all accounts, finalising the pick Adelaide will receive, as well as how much of Betts’ salary they’ll contribute.
Jack Steven’s move to Geelong has stalled, with Cats list manager Stephen Wells saying yesterday he wouldn’t be surprised if the midfielder remains at St Kilda in 2020. FOur-time best-and-fairest- winner Steven played just seven games in 2019 and is off contract at the end of the next season.
Meanwhile, all of Orazio Fantasia, Tom Papley, Joe Daniher and Dougal Howard could soon be on the move from their respective clubs, so there’s no shortage of trade news to follow along today.
