Trade Wrap Headlines, October 11
With thanks to our good friends at VicSuper, here’s the latest Trade Wrap Headlines and Podcast
Port involved in pick swap
Port Adelaide have been involved in a complicated pick swap with Fremantle, netting them pick six in the process.
The Dockers gain picks 11, 23 and 30 and a late draft selection for giving up pick six and another late selection.
Jake Kelly could be on the move
Adelaide defender Jake Kelly could be heading back to Victoria, with Collingwood keen to pair him with prospective 2018 father-son draftee and brother of Jake, Will Kelly.
The deal would be a three-way transaction which would see Tom Langdon head to the Swans, Adelaide netting pick 33 and Kelly moving to the Pies.
Mitch Cleary said Langdon was heading towards the exit door at the Pies.
“As every minute passes, I think he’s leaning towards leaving the Collingwood footy club and going to Sydney,” he said.

Jesse Hogan’s proposed move from Melbourne hangs in the balance.
But Mitch Cleary told Trade Wrap he believes the deal with ultimately get done.
“It’s a bit of tug-of-war at the moment,” he said.
“Melbourne don’t want to lose him cheaply but they also need to get a deal done for Steven May.”
Should Carlton turn their attention to Stephen Coniglio?
Mitch Cleary says Coniglio “absolutely fits” Carlton’s list profile but queried how the Blues could get a deal done if any possible trade eventuated.
“They’ve got pick one but they don’t want to lose that,” he said.
“These Giants and their salary cap situation, as each day passes we’re learning more and more about it and it’s getting worse and worse.”
“It’s news to me but it’s one to follow up.”
