Fremantle have reportedly tabled a lucrative deal for banned Essendon free agent Cale Hooker.

Jake Niall from Fox Sports has reported that the 27-year-old, who is from Western Australia, has been offered a five-year deal to join the Dockers from 2017.

Hooker is a restricted free agent, meaning the Bombers will have an opportunity to match any bid Fremantle make for Hooker.

The offer is said to be large enough that it would earn the Bombers a first round compensation pick.

Hooker is one of 34 past and present Essendon players currently serving a 12-month doping ban.


  1. Hooker will always remembered for one thing and one thing only. As the bloke who couldn’t chase down buddy on the half forward flank at the mcg not once but twice . Two of the best goals you’ll ever see

  2. Hope so,one of few efc fans that’s wanted him gone for years.Prepare yourself freo fans.This blokes gonna suck.especially under Lyons structures.if we get a pick great,if it were up to me,I’d give him 4 free and pay his first years salary.
