Adelaide's wheelings and dealings for 2022 are almost over, having secured Suns gun Izak Rankine while fringe tall Billy Frampton is still expected to find his way to Collingwood before Wednesday's trade period deadline.

The Crows secure Rankine's services in a trade with Gold Coast on Monday, sending Pick 5 to Carrara while multiple later selections also traded places.

The move sees the lively small forward return to his home state of South Australia and joins the team he passionately followed as a junior, while it also adds to the long list of star departures across the Suns' short history.

The acquisition of Rankine is also likely to be Adelaide's first and only of the 2022 exchange window as they begin turning their attention toward the National Draft next month.

Speaking on Trade Radio on Monday, Adelaide list manager Justin Reid provided insight into his club's movements before the trade deadline, with Frampton set to join the Magpies before the Crows wrap up their plans.

"We're still working through with Billy Frampton with Collingwood," Reid said.

"It was always a priority to bring Izak into the club and then work towards the draft.

"Two years of bringing some high-end talent like Jordan Dawson and Izak (to the club), but then also some high-end talent through the draft, it just gives us a good balance."

Frampton isn't the only Crows player linked to the exit this off-season, with contracted trio Matt Crouch, Lachlan Sholl and Fischer McAsey all having their names raised as part of the rumour mill.

Both Crouch and McAsey have been seen as targets for rival clubs as they sit on the fringes of selection under Matthew Nicks.

But when asked on the placing of the Crows trio, Reid expressed all three are seen set on remaining at West Lakes, while there are no guarantees for off-contract forward Jimmy Rowe.

"I think we've been pretty consistent I guess leading into the trade period of our understanding with Matt (Crouch) being out of the team a bit during the year," Reid added,

"But we're pretty certain, (with) Matt being contracted and looking for a big off-season, he'll be at the club next year.

"'Sholly' and 'Fish' are both contracted, so I know both of them are looking to big off-seasons.

"We've got a few out of contract, James Rowe being one of them. So with most clubs you have half a dozen guys that have to sit through trade period and list lodgements due at the end of October.

"So we'll work through that in the coming weeks, but we're tight for list spots. We're working through things over the next 48 hours."

The 2022 AFL Trade Period deadline closes at 7:30pm (AEDT) on Wednesday, October 12.
