Port Adelaide tall Billy Frampton will join arch-rivals Adelaide in the trade period, according to Kane Cornes.
Cornes told Telstra AFL Trade Radio on Monday night that Frampton requested to be traded from the Power with the Crows and Fremantle the favourites to secure the 22-year-old.
Frampton is set to become the first player since Brad Symes in 2007 to be involved in a trade between the South Australian foes.
“I can tell you he (Frampton) will play for Adelaide next year,” Cornes told Telstra AFL Trade Radio.
“Port Adelaide and Adelaide will put their rivalry aside to try and broker a deal that would see Billy Frampton move from Port Adelaide to the Crows.
“It’ll happen, he will be at the Crows.”
Frampton has played three games for Port Adelaide and has fallen behind Scott Lycett, Peter Ladhams and Todd Marshall in the ruck pecking order at Alberton.
