St Kilda is in the box seat to land wantaway Tiger Jack Higgins, per SEN's Sam Edmund.

The Richmond youngster is set to pursue a move to a Victorian club during the trade period, as first reported by Edmund earlier on Wednesday morning.

It is understood that both Higgins and the club have agreed to explore a trade for the 21-year old during the upcoming November window.

Higgins reportedly has a Victorian club in his sights - not Carlton - who he was linked to earlier this week.

The young gun is contracted for next season, meaning a rival club would need to trade to acquire him.

Higgins' career was at risk last year after undergoing brain surgery and he has struggled for regular senior opportunities since.

The forward has played 43 games for Richmond over three seasons after getting drafted with Pick 17 in the 2017 AFL Draft.

The AFL trade period runs from November 4-12.
