Two-time Fremantle best and fairest winner Lachie Neale has officially joined the Lions, after the two parties agreed a deal on Wednesday.

Brisbane were finally able to send over a suitable deal in return for Neale, after completing a pick swap with the Suns under an hour before the Neale deal became official.

The Lions have traded pick 6, pick 19 and 55 in return for the 25-year-old, who was the Dockers’ best player this season.

The 25-year-old’s move east is set to kickstart a number of trades, with Jesse Hogan, Steven May and Dayne Beams all set to move this afternoon.
