Fremantle youngster Hayden Crozier appears likely to join last year’s premiers, the Western Bulldogs during the upcoming trade period.

News Corp’s Jon Ralph reports Crozier will join the Dogs for a late draft pick.

The 23-year-old grew up in Melbourne’s South-Eastern suburbs, playing TAC Cup footy for Eastern Ranges, before being drafted with pick No.20 in 2011.

He has played a total of 69 games in six years at the Dockers, while he played 19 matches and kicked 13 goals in 2017.

He is well known for his high flying marks, but has also become a consistent contributor for Fremantle over the few past years, playing 46 games and averaging 13 disposals over the past three seasons.

While Crozier looks like to be out the door, Suns’ small forward Brandon Matera is set to join the Dockers this off-season.

Matera played 101 games with the Suns since its inception into the AFL in 2011, kicking 124 goals and is understood to have completed a medical at the Dockers earlier this week.
