Impey lands at Hawthorn

Port Adelaide forward Jarman Impey has finalised a move back home to Victoria, and has joined Hawthorn on a three-year deal ahead of the 2018 season.

The Hawks have sent pick 33, 61 and a future fourth round selection to the Power for Impey, while the Power have attached pick 67 along with the forward.

Impey, who played 75 games for the Power in his four seasons at the club, requested a trade just over a week ago, and went on to nominate Hawthorn on the eve of the trade period.

The move sees Hawthorn add more pace and talent to their forward line, while allowing the Power to boost their draft stocks.

“We are really pleased a deal could be reached with Port Adelaide and look forward to welcoming Jarman to the Hawks,” Hawthorn’s Recruiting and List Manager Graham Wright told hawthornfc.com.au.

“His outstanding speed and endurance will be a really valuable asset and his ability to play at both ends of the ground is a great advantage.

“Jarman is a competitive character, who goes hard at the footy, which makes him an exciting acquisition and a terrific addition to our list. 

“At only 22 years of age, Jarman has plenty of football ahead of him and we can’t wait to see what he can produce in the brown and gold.”

For Port Adelaide, it continues quite a busy off-season for the club, in what is their third move of the Free Agency and Trade Period window.

Utility Jackson Trengove signed with the Western Bulldogs on Friday, but the Power were able to make their own Free Agency signing on Wednesday, landing former Brisbane captain Tom Rockliff.

The Impey trade also may not be their final piece of business, with midfielder Brendon Ah Chee requesting a trade to the West Coast Eagles earlier in the week.
