Western Bulldogs ruckman Tom Campbell is reportedly exploring his trade options, following a lean year at the kennel.

Campbell, who is contracted for 2018, managed just seven games this season as he slipped down the pecking order at the Whitten Oval and has played a total of 42 matches in six years.

He will find it even harder to win a spot in the 2016 premiers’ side next season, following the addition of free agent Jackson Trengove from Port Adelaide.

The Herald Sun reports due to his lack of game time, the 26-year-old is now exploring his options on the trade table, with the Dogs open to a trade for Campbell is he finds an interested buyer.

He averaged nine disposals, 33 hitouts and two marks in his seven senior matches in 2017.
