Sydney premiership player Dan Hannebery has told the club he wants to be dealt away from the Swans during the upcoming trade period.

Foxfooty.com.au broke the news on Tuesday night, after learning Hannebery told Sydney coach John Longmire of his decision during his exit interview earlier that day.

Hannebery has played 208 games for the Swans since making his debut in Round 16, 2009, and was a member of their premiership side in 2012.

The 27-year-old is also a three-time All Australian, including being named in the squad in back-to-back seasons in 2015 and 2016.

St Kilda loom as the most likely destination for Hannebery, although both clubs will need to agree on a trade before the midfielder moves clubs.
