Geelong have lodged paperwork for Western Bulldogs midfielder Luke Dahlhaus.

The Dogs won’t match the contract for the 26-year-old, meaning Dahlhaus will play in the blue and white hoops next season.

It was reported last month that Dahlhaus would leave the Dogs, and it is believed Geelong’s offer is around $500,000 over four years.
