Hoskin-Elliott has struggled to cement his place in the senior side in recent seasons, playing 52 games since making his debut in 2012, amid a plethora of highly talented onballers at the club.

He has managed only two games this season due to an ongoing quad injury, and managed just 11 games last season in a disappointing year, despite playing 20 matches in 2014.

While he is contracted for 2017, the Giants do need to free up space in their salary cap and he is said to be considering his options for next season.

Hoskin-Elliott has averaged 11.7 disposals, 4.2 marks, 2.1 tackles and just under one goal per game in his career to date.

  1. He wont be sold to the Pies, they have nothing to offer that the Giants want. I love Wilba, but wouldn’t begrudge him a fresh start somewhere else. Giants wont be looking for players but picks due to the list number coming down. Giant already have Pies first pick
