AFL Media's Trade Winds: day two

Trade Week Update: Josh Mahoney We chat to Josh Mahoney about Melbourne's list entering into trade week

PLAYERS have already begun changing clubs, with deals done on Monday to see Lincoln McCarthy (Brisbane) and Anthony Miles and Corey Ellis (Gold Coast) land at new destinations.

AFL.com.au's Trade Winds will provide a round-up of the latest action each morning until the end of the NAB AFL Trade Period on Wednesday, October 17. 

Cat intent on Eagles

Geelong star Tim Kelly will walk out on the club after 2019 if he is held to his contract for next season, the Herald Sunreports.

Kelly has requested a trade to West Coast so he can return home, but has a year to run on his deal.

While he wants to live in Western Australia, his manager Anthony Van Der Wielen said the Eagles' crosstown rivals were not an option.

"He is not going to Fremantle. I have had players there and I don't think they are an attractive proposition for him," Van Der Wielen said.

"He will go to West Coast and if he doesn't, he will be playing at Geelong, then he will leave the year after."

Dogs hunt Hawk

The Western Bulldogs are looking at unrestricted free agent and Hawthorn left-footer Taylor Duryea, The Age says.

Duryea, 27, has spoken to Sydney, but the Dogs may sign him instead.

He would join fringe Richmond forward Sam Lloyd, who is expected to be traded eventually to the Dogs. 

Giant play

Greater Western Sydney is eyeing off Carlton's prized No.1 pick at the NAB AFL Draft, according to The Daily Telegraph.

Young midfielder Will Setterfield has already requested a trade to the Blues and if his teammate Dylan Shiel chooses to join him ahead of Hawthorn, St Kilda and Essendon, a deal could be done to see GWS end up with a fifth No.1 selection on its list.

The four already at the club are Brett Deledio (2004), Tom Scully (2009), Jonathon Patton (2011) and Lachie Whitfield (2012).

Carlton list manager Stephen Silvagni told Macquarie Sports Radio on Monday it was "highly unlikely" the club would trade No.1 but would consider it if the offer was good enough.
