With more clubs having their seasons come to a close while others continue their plans after a few weeks already spent in the off-season, the AFL trade world is continuing to turn.

A new name has emerged as a potential trade target for Collingwood, while a handful of trade requests were lodged in recent days.

The Cats added to their list for next season as the Bombers get busy in the hope of improving their list for 2024.

Here's all the latest trade news from the past week.

Essendon in the mix for Saints free agent

St Kilda midfield-forward Jade Gresham is said to be gaining interest from Essendon as he takes the next step in his future planning.

With St Kilda's season coming to an end last weekend, attention now turns to Gresham, who can exercise his rights as a free agent and depart Moorabbin with little resistance.

Essendon have looked to the free agency market to build their list for next year, with Kangaroo Ben McKay also linked to a move to Tullamarine.

Bomber seeks move to SA

Essendon defender Brandon Zerk-Thatcher has reportedly informed the Bombers of his intentions to seek a trade to Port Adelaide.

A South Australian native, Zerk-Thatcher's desire to return to his home state comes as the Bombers ramp up their plans to move on North Melbourne free agent Ben McKay.

Zerk-Thatcher is the second key backman to seek a move to Port Adelaide, following Geelong's Esava Ratugolea.

Geelong add 203cm talent 

The Cats were the latest club to dive into the talent available for a category B rookie deal, signing former basketballer Joe Furphy ahead of the 2024 season.

Furphy joins Geelong with immediate effect and will bolster the club's ruck stocks after transitioning from the hardwood.

The 24-year-old made one appearance for the Northern Knights in 2018 and is now back on the football path.

Port drop out of Grundy race

Any move for Brodie Grundy is said to be over for the Power, who will place their attention elsewhere following discussions with the Melbourne ruckman.

While a move to Alberton would see Grundy return to his home state, the two-time All-Australian is reportedly placing a preference elsewhere as he weighs up his future.

Sydney looms as the frontrunner for Grundy's services as they too look to add to their ruck stocks.

Magpies, Roos linked to fringe Bulldog

Collingwood is said to be among the clubs showing some level of interest in unsigned Bulldogs swingman Buku Khamis.

Khamis is yet to confirm his future for 2024 after a year where he managed just one appearance at AFL level.

His situation has piqued the interest of others, with the Magpies and Kangaroos reportedly showing some interest.

Quartet of clubs linked to Melbourne midfielder

Richmond, Carlton, Essendon, and Sydney are all said to be showing some level of interest in contracted Melbourne onballer James Harmes ahead of the exchange window.

Harmes has struggled to break back into Simon Goodwin's lineup this year and is considering his options for the second time in as many years after meeting with the Bombers last year.

Essendon are now reportedly showing further interest in Harmes, while the Tigers, Swans and Blues have also been linked.

Dogs ruckman lodges trade request

Western Bulldogs tall Jordon Sweet has officially requested a move away from Whitten Oval, with a trade to Port Adelaide to follow.

Sweet has struggled to secure a spot in Luke Beveridge's side given the reign of All-Australian ruckman Tim English, with the big-bodied ruckman now set to lead the Power's ruck group from 2024.

Dusty's future settled as move north looms for Demon

Former Richmond coach and newly-signed Suns mentor Damien Hardwick has put an end to the rumours that surround superstar Tiger Dustin Martin, stating the veteran midfielder will be at Punt Road in 2024.

Martin had been linked to the Suns this year given Hardwick's move to Carrara, however the triple Norm Smith Medal winner is now set to see out the end of his lucrative seven-year contract.

Meanwhile, contracted Melbourne ruckman Brodie Grundy is seen as a near-guarantee to land with the Swans this trade period.

Young Swan expected to make Arden Street switch

Sydney wingman Dylan Stephens is understood to have lodged a request to move away from Harbour City and find a new home in the hope of greater opportunities.

Stephens has fallen in and out of the Swans' senior side in recent seasons and could secure a move to North Melbourne, who are keen on bolstering their squad with some outside run.

A former top 10 pick, Stephens could still have some good trade value for Sydney this off-season.

The picks, or players, that could get Port trade deals done

Port Adelaide have a trio of rival players seeking moves to Alberton for this year's trade period, with a busy exchange window on the horizon for the Power.

All of Brandon Zerk-Thatcher, Jordon Sweet and Esava Ratugolea are said to be keen on landing on Ken Hinkley's list, with the Power now needing to get creative to get all three trades done.

We've run our eye over their draft hand and list to see what, or who, Port Adelaide might need to give up to secure all three wantaway players.

Demons utility Harrison Petty has emerged as a potential trade piece in talks between Melbourne and Adelaide over a deal for Shane McAdam.

Petty, an SA native, is reportedly of interest to the Crows.
