Sam Edmund’s trade update on Smith, Cripps, Tarrant plus the latest on Josh Dunkley


SEN Chief Sports Reporter Sam Edmund joined Gerard Whateley for the latest on the trade and free agency period.

He had an update on Essendon’s pursuit of Josh Dunkley, while also spoke at length about Isaac Smith.

See all the latest updates below:

Josh Dunkley (Western Bulldogs)

“The Western Bulldogs have got two weeks to convince Josh Dunkley that his future lies at Whitten Oval,” he said on SEN’s Whateley.

“Dunkley wants to play for Essendon next year and the Bombers believe he’s told his teammates and other Dogs people that he wants to leave.

“While Dunkley has not formally submitted a trade request yet, the Dogs are aware he wants out with two years to run on his contract.

“It’s one for Essendon that has almost fallen into their lap and they’re sitting back to see what happens with Dunkley.

“The Dogs will put the shutters up now and say there’s nothing to see here.”

Isaac Smith (Hawthorn)

“We’ve heard such little information about Isaac Smith,” he said.

“Alastair Clarkson has been in his ear, they desperately want to keep him, but the offer is longer at Melbourne.

“History says the Hawks don’t lose too many they want to keep, but they’re rebuilding and resetting.

“Smith has yet to make a formal decision.”

Patrick Cripps (Carlton)

“He will always be linked with a move back home,” he said.

“He’s contracted for next year and there’s no doubt that Carlton will want to sign him to an extension this year, that is beyond doubt.

“The longer this goes on next year, it would go from mildly concerning to very concerning at Princes Park if they couldn’t lock him in to stay.

“But he is the captain at Carlton … it will be an unfolding situation.”

Robbie Tarrant (North Melbourne)

“He was disgruntled a couple of months ago,” he said.

“But the club has since taken some steps to satisfy him. Tarrant is staying at North Melbourne like Todd Goldstein is staying.”

Sam Edmund’s trade update on Smith, De Goey, Hogan and the “messy” Treloar situation


Sam Edmund joined Gerard Whateley and Kane Cornes on SEN’s Crunch Time for his daily trade and free agency update.

He has some added detail on the situation at Collingwood with Jordan De Goey and Adam Treloar, while also providing an update on which club is interested in Jesse Hogan.

See all the updates below:

Adam Treloar (Collingwood)

“He’s probably the mayor of the intrigue category through no fault of his own,” he said.

“To be honest, it’s getting a bit messy. My reading of it at the moment is Collingwood want Treloar to make the first move and they desperately want this contract off the books.

“This contract is until 2025, it’s back-ended and it’s huge in the back end – my understanding is it’s around $900,000 a season and that is obviously pre-COVID.”

Jordan De Goey (Collingwood)

“This is an ongoing scenario,” he said.

“He was put out there in the marketplace for rival clubs and that was instigated by his father Roger, there was not much substance to the Carlton interest and there never has been.

“It all points to him staying at Collingwood and on a far less lucrative contract that he would have previously commanded.

“I think he stays and it’s on a two-year deal.”

Jesse Hogan (Fremantle)

“Fremantle has told clubs that he’s available and gettable for a trade,” he said.

“Whether those clubs are willing to go there is the question we can’t answer at the moment. I’m told GWS will ask the question to sound him out and whether he’d be interested in coming over east.

“He’s really struggled to make an impact at Fremantle, he’s a curious case.”

Clayton Oliver (Melbourne)

“The intrigue around him has dimmed somewhat but the restless was real from the player himself,” he said.

“The queue to sign him would be long, there was some fact there that he was unhappy, but there was some fact there that he was unhappy but there’s a big bridge between being unhappy and then putting in a trade request.

“He now stays (at Melbourne).”

Isaac Smith (Hawthorn)

“I think we all suspect he is leaving Hawthorn,” he said.

“We know Geelong is interested, but Melbourne is the frontrunners.

“Melbourne have somewhat of an obsession with finding the ideal wingers.”

Sam Edmund’s trade update on Dunkley, Witherden, Caldwell and more


SEN Chief Sports Reporter Sam Edmund joined Gerard Whateley for the latest update on several players ahead of the trade period.

Edmund reports that Essendon’s interest in Josh Dunkley is “real”, while the Bombers’ chances of landing young GWS midfielder Jye Caldwell could be increased after Brad Crouch nominated St Kilda as his club of choice.

See all the later here:

Alex Witherden (Brisbane)

“The Lions might find it hard to find rival interest,” he said on SEN’s Whateley.

“That is a pretty healthy deal he’s still on at Brisbane, whether other clubs are willing to absorb that remains to be seen.”

Ollie Wines (Port Adelaide)

“I’d be shocked if Ollie Wines (left),” he said.

“(A possible move to Carlton) was done very subtly last year around family members, contacting people around Carlton who then went to the club directly – it was very much off broadway.

“(Port Adelaide coach) Ken Hinkley could not have been more categoric in recent times.”

Jye Caldwell (GWS Giants)

“Essendon have a real interest in him and I can say that with absolute certainty,” he said.

“What (Brad Crouch nominating St Kilda) does for Jye I’m not so sure – his motivation to leave GWS centres on opportunities and if you’re reading between the lines, the opportunity has dramatically reduced itself at Moorabbin.

“You have to say it does hurt St Kilda’s chances, if he to leave, it looks like it could be to Essendon but it could still be St Kilda (too).

Josh Dunkley (Western Bulldogs)

“The interest from Essendon is there and the story is 100 per cent accurate,” he said.

“They’ve asked the question and he’s contracted at Western Bulldogs – it would take a fair bit to get him out if he was even willing to get out.

“He will have the final say on that, but the interest (from the Bombers) is real.”

Charlie Constable (Geelong)

“There’s no rival interest there at the moment,” he said.

Sam Edmund’s trade update on Melbourne pair and Orazio Fantasia


SEN Chief Sports Reporter Sam Edmund has issued his daily trade and player movement update with Gerard Whateley on SEN’s Whateley.

Edmund has the latest on the futures of Oscar and Tom McDonald at Melbourne and where wantaway Essendon forward Orazio Fantasia is likely to land.

The Bombers and Brisbane have met over Joe Daniher’s move to the Lions – and the discussions have been far from smooth.

Oscar McDonald

“He will move on,” Edmund said.

“Opportunities slim for him at Melbourne, both parties agreeing that a trade will almost likely happen.”

Tom McDonald

“If an amazing offer takes place, he’s got two years to run on his deal at Melbourne, then Melbourne will trade him – and the player knows that.

“But at the moment that doesn’t look like happening.

“It’s a pretty handsome deal this one, he’s got two years to go on it, he’s made some promises about going away and improving his body shape.

“If you’re a betting person, you say Tom McDonald stays unless there is a really big offer.”

Orazio Fantasia

“I think Essendon expect it to be the Crows. We know Adam Kelly has spoken.

“He actually broke the news essentially that the trade request had been put it, which didn’t go down too well at Tullamarine.

“I was speaking to Essendon on the day that that came out and they had no idea that Adam Kelly had said that.

“Having said all that I think they’ll recover from that, I think he gets to Adelaide in the end.”
