“We have been undertaking a due diligence process as part of a possible trade to secure Jesse Hogan,” Fremantle football boss Peter Bell said in a statement.
“As part of that process, we have had discussions with Jesse, the player’s management and Melbourne.
“While discussions were proceeding it became clear that what Melbourne would be seeking for a trade would not be possible for our club to meet.
“As such, we have informed Melbourne and Jesse’s management that we will not be continuing further with the due diligence process.”
