Move for Saint “ruled out” as Edmund delivers mega trade update on key targets


SEN’s Sam Edmund has provided a comprehensive trade update on several players whose futures remain up in the air.

Speaking on SEN Breakfast, Edmund gave the latest on moves for Ollie Henry, Lachie Whitfield, Brodie Grundy, Luke Jackson, Izak Rankine, a Saint that won’t be on the move and more with just three days remaining in the trade period.

Check out Edmund’s mega trade update below:

Ollie Henry (Collingwood)

“The one I worry about is Ollie Henry from Collingwood to Geelong.

“Collingwood clearly wants more, they want a first-round pick, Geelong are now out to (pick) 25, they would like to think that’s enough, I don’t think it is.

“They might get seven in for the Bowes deal, but the Cats at this stage are saying, ‘We don’t want to split pick seven, we want to take it to the draft’.

“I’m not sure unless Collingwood does a massive backflip how the Ollie Henry deal gets done.”

Lachie Whitfield (GWS)

“No (he won’t be traded).

“The only reason I say that, it’s the same with Nick Haynes as well, that the (Jacob) Hopper deal will get done.

“The hold up at the moment is Ivan Soldo striking that deal with GWS, he will be involved in the trade once that contract is settled and gets done.

“It’ll be Richmond’s future first, pick 31 and Ivan Soldo (for Hopper), that’s the deal that’s been discussed for some time.”

Luke Jackson (Melbourne)

“This is another one with no real movement over the weekend.

“Melbourne and the Dockers are trying to agree on what happens after Fremantle hands over this year’s pick 13 and a future first-rounder.

“Freo have wanted something back and Melbourne wanted more back.

“It’s more likely we’ll see a pick swap that’s more favourable to the Demons in the back end, this year or next.

“Forget West Coast for Jackson, the Eagles didn’t want to use pick two on him and that pick is now in discussions elsewhere.

“Jackson is the big circuit breaker though, that’s holding up Brodie Grundy and Rory Lobb trades.”

Brodie Grundy (Collingwood)

“That’ll happen, both clubs have said it will happen.

“They’ve agreed on the financial terms with that, Collingwood and Melbourne, that’s in place.

“They want more than Melbourne’s pick 27 for Grundy, whether they’ll get it or not remains to be seen.

“They were on the record of saying they wanted something in the top 25, is 27 near enough?”

Tom Mitchell (Hawthorn)

“I still think it gets done to Collingwood.

“This has been planned a long way out and was always going to happen late in the piece.

“It was always going to be subject to other things going on, there’s a chance it’s not happening of course.

“But I still think he gets there.”

Izak Rankine (Gold Coast)

“I’m not sure what the hold up is.

“It was earmarked for Thursday, pick five is in there as the pillar, there’ll be a sweetener in there.

“The Suns want future picks for their academy kids next year, they’ve got a handful of those kids coming through.”

Jack Bowes (Gold Coast)

“The Cats traded their future second to Brisbane.

“A future third might have to do in a deal that sparked all this equalisation debate given the Cats will get pick seven in.

“Imagine if the Suns accept a future third.

“They’re waiting, Gold Coast, that’s why this deal hasn’t been done, they’re hoping somehow some way, something else shakes out of the tree and they can get more back for Jack Bowes.”

Hunter Clark (St Kilda)

“Hunter Clark I think we can rule out as well.

“He was another one linked to North Melbourne.”
