Hawthorn could part ways with forward Luke Breust in order to secure the signature of Gold Coast onballer Jaeger O’Meara.
According to reports, Breust could be offered up as part of a deal to the Suns, which could result in a significant pay rise for the 25-year-old.
North Melbourne champion and Triple M Radio commentator, Wayne Carey, said on Saturday afternoon that Breust was told during the week of his possible departure.
“I’m hearing that Luke Breust has been told, which I found very surprising, he got told during the week that if a deal could be done that he may be one of the ones (up for trade),” Carey said.
Gold Coast will also likely ask for a high first round draft pick as well as a player for O’Meara.
Breust, who was recruited with pick No. 47 in the 2009 rookie draft, from Temora in New South Wales, has kicked 271 goals in 140 games with the Hawks.
