Wingman and Fremantle a “fair way apart” on new deal


Fremantle and Blake Acres are a “fair way apart” on a new deal, reports SEN’s Sam Edmund.

Acres is out of contract has been linked with a move to a third AFL club.

Carlton and North Melbourne have been mentioned as potential suitors for the 26-year-old wingman who is yet to re-sign with the Dockers.

There could be plenty of movement at Fremantle this off-season as they continue to chase Melbourne’s Luke Jackson.

Contracted tall Rory Lobb could be on the way out, while Griffin Logue also remains unsigned.

“Blake Acres is a player that’s been put on the radar of quite a few clubs,” Edmund told SEN’s Whateley.

“I think North Melbourne might be another one as well.

“He has been offered a contract for next year at Fremantle that isn’t really to his liking, he might even be asked to take less.

“He was pretty well paid when he first came across and took a while to get going at Fremantle. That’s turned around this year.

“Whether he’d entertain another move back over to the eastern seaboard, whether it’d be Carlton, whether it’d be North Melbourne, might be a stretch, who knows.

“But the bottom line is they’re a fair way apart at the moment, player and club.”

Acres is having his best season in Fremantle colours since arriving from St Kilda at the end of 2019.

The unsigned Docker is averaging 21.3 disposals and 4.1 inside 50s per game this year.
