Tarryn Thomas “wrestling“ with handing in trade request at North Melbourne


North Melbourne’s Tarryn Thomas is a “live” watch to request a move away from the club during the trade period.

According to SEN Chief Sports Reporter Sam Edmund, Thomas is a chance to seek a move away from Arden St in what would represent another blow after teammate Jason Horne-Francis handed in a trade request on Sunday.

Edmund said while the 22-year-old hasn’t requested a trade yet, there is a “live watch” on Thomas seeking a move elsewhere before the trade period closes on October 12.

“There is plenty of smoke around Tarryn Thomas,” he said on SEN Breakfast.

“He has been wrestling with requesting a trade out of North Melbourne himself.

“At the moment it hasn’t happened but that’s a live watch at North Melbourne considering everything that is going on then.”

Thomas remains contracted until 2024, with Edmund previously reporting that he was “gettable” before Alastair Clarkson’s arrival at the club.

But with the current uncertainty around Clarkson as a result of allegations levelled against him by First Nations families during his time at Hawthorn, Thomas could look to move elsewhere in the coming days.
