Jake Melksham set to join Melbourne

Essendon midfielder Jake Melksham is off to Melbourne on a four-year deal worth $1.6 million, says Sam ‘Scoop’ McClure.

But Leigh Matthews and Gerard Healy aren’t so sure it’s a good idea for the Demons.

Scoop said Melksham, 24, was heading for an Essendon exit in a move that will only intensify speculation over the future of Demons high-flyer Jeremy Howe.

‘Howe’s been waiting for a contract offer from the Demons for 10 days,’ Scoop explained on Sports Today.

‘It’s fair to say he’s relatively miffed with Melksham getting the same amount of money he has asked for.

‘He’s not feeling the love at Melbourne.’
