Crows midfielder considering trade options

Fringe Adelaide midfielder Cam Ellis-Yolmen will weigh up his options before deciding whether to request a trade for the chance to play more senior football.

The 23-year-old is contracted until the end of 2017 and has been told he is a required player, but only managed two senior games for the Crows this year despite Patrick Dangerfield’s departure to Geelong.

Ellis-Yolmen is in his fifth season with the Crows and was a standout in their SANFL side this year.

“Cam just wants an opportunity to play AFL,” Ellis-Yolmen’s manager Ben Williams told The Advertiser.

“He loves the Crows and thinks he can play an important role for them going forward, but he is a bit frustrated by his lack of game time.

“That’s what he has to consider so he’ll assess all his options, see what the Crows want to do with their midfield and see how the trade period plays out.”


  1. And yet we sign Thompson for another year. I’m sorry Thompson HAS been a terrific player but you need to look at opportunity cost here. Is it worth still playing him and losing someone like CEY who has plenty of years ahead?
