Following lengthy discussions and multiple scuppered attempts, a deal that will see Jordan Dawson trade the harbour city for the city of churches has finally been agreed upon.
In a Tuesday night report from Fox Sports' Tom Morris, it was stated that the Swan will become a Crow on the final day of the trade period after both parties agreed upon an asking price that was tabled days ago.
The pick that eventually brokered the deal had initially been Melbourne's opening selection at next year's draft but following a four-way exchange between the Crows, Demons, Bulldogs and Saints, the option landed in the West Lakes-based club's hands.
Adelaide also received the 33rd and 75th selections in this year's draft after shipping out picks 23, 37, 44, 62, 66 and a future fourth.
In the words of Morris, Dawson will now return to his state of origin on a five-year contract that is said to be worth in the vicinity of $650,000 per season.
The wingman will join the Crows following a career year that saw him finish third in the Swans' best and fairest count after averaging means of 22.3 disposals and 4.9 rebound 50s across his 23 appearances.
While the trade will not become official until after midday on Wednesday, as per the league's rules on deadline deals, the exchange will become finalised well before the deadline of 7:30pm.
The product of South Australia's south-east coast will also link up his boyhood club in the wake of 64-games in a red and white guernsey since debuting in Round 3, 2017.
Dawson was originally selected by the Swans with the 56th pick of the 2015 draft.
