Victorian clubs have been alerted to the go-home desire of top-end draft pick Fischer McAsey.
McAsey, the No.6 selection in the 2019 National Draft to the Adelaide Crows, is considered almost certain to request a trade back to his home state at seasons end.
The 196cm key position prospect from Caulfield Grammar hasn’t settled in South Australia and also has personal family reasons for exploring a move to a Melbourne-based club.
McAsey last year played 10 games for the Crows, with coach Matthew Nicks using him at both ends of the ground where he caught the eye with his contested marking.
But he wasn’t able to get a pre-season game in a rebuilding side that has defenders Daniel Talia (knee), Tom Doedee (groin) and Jake Kelly (hamstring) missing with injury.
McAsey remains unsigned beyond 2021.
