Jaeger O’Meara requests trade to Hawthorn

Jaeger O’Meara has officially requested a trade to Hawthorn.

O’Meara informed the Suns of his desire to join the Hawks earlier today, after he last month officially requested a trade.

The Hawks will now work with the Suns to facilitate a trade for the 22-year-old.

“Jaeger has indicated he wants to be at Hawthorn in 2017 and we are keen to make this happen,” Hawthorn Recruiting and List Manager Graham Wright said.

“We fully respect that Jaeger is a Gold Coast player and we will work closely with the Suns in the lead up to the trade period to ensure we can get an appropriate deal done.”

O’Meara won the 2013 rising star award and played every game in his first two years, before debilitating knee injuries saw him miss the past two seasons.

He is said to have been deciding between Hawthorn and Essendon.
