Collingwood’s Travis Cloke has requested a trade

UPDATE: Collingwood has confirmed that forward Travis Cloke has officially requested a trade.

Cloke has grown frustrated with his position at the Magpies this season, following coach Nathan Buckley’s decision toΒ drop the premiership forward three times this year.

Other Sports News

He has played 246 games for the Pies, including 13 this season, kicking 441 goals.

Richmond, North Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs are understood to be interested in the 29-year-old, with the Dogs believed to be the front runners to secure his services.

The club released the following statement a short time ago:

“Collingwood can confirm that veteran forward Travis Cloke this morning asked to be released from the final year of his contract.

While Travis remains contracted to play for Collingwood in 2017, all at Collingwood respect Travis’ right to explore his options and acknowledge his 12 years of exceptional senior service.”

    • Trav could be a nightmare for pies if he goes to say Richmond. A fresh start could get his confidence back, and if he sorted his goal kicking out, he’s a dominant forward. I mean look what he did to dees last year, 7 goals against Mcdonald who was in all Australian form hahah

  1. Cloke is either an idiot, delusional or both. He’s leaving because he doesn’t wanna play VFL. But The only clubs that would want him would be premiership contenders, but definitely wouldn’t be guaranteed a game at any of those clubs.

  2. That sux he should have never been dropped that 3rd time its a bit hard to kick goals when the ball isnt coming in and when it does the mids are kicking to opposition
    He still is a big presence up forward. Hope he kicks 10 on Nathan brown firsr game against pies…… another prem player out the door since 2012

  3. Sorry trav but we made a mistake paying you 800k over that 4 years you were not worth it then and you not worth a quarter of that now. what a waste of money!!!. good riddons mate
