We're left with the final day of the 2022 AFL Trade Period, with a number of deals still needing to be lodged before Wednesday night's 7:30pm (AEDT) deadline.

Tuesday's action saw five players trade clubs, while a number of early picks also changed hands.

Here's a wrap-up on where things sit heading into the last 24 hours of the trade window.


Five more deals locked in 

On the penultimate day of the trade period, five deals were finalised, with some high-profile names swapping places.

Dockers join Giants in pursuit of Hawk

Fremantle have reportedly joined GWS in their interest for Hawthorn midfielder Jaeger O'Meara.

The Dockers are set to make a late play for the 28-year-old Western Australian, according to reports from News Corp, with the Hawks star entering free agency at the end of 2023.

Hawthorn moved Jack Gunston on Tuesday and are still looking to facilitate a trade for Brownlow medallist Tom Mitchell. Should the Hawks pursue a full rebuild, O'Meara could be the next to move clubs.

Fremantle currently holds Picks 44, 67, and 76, but are also involved with Hawthorn in talks with ruckman Lloyd Meek.

Dees interested in Dogs tall

The Demons are reportedly expressing an interest in off-contract Bulldogs swingman Josh Schache amid a busy trade and free agency window for Melbourne.

Simon Goodwin's squad has already bid farewell to Luke Jackson (Fremantle), Jayden Hunt (West Coast) and Toby Bedford (GWS) this off-season, while forward Sam Weideman is tipped to join Essendon before Wednesday's trade deadline.

The Demons have also secured Collingwood ruckman Brodie Grundy in a trade.

According to SEN's Sam Edmund, Schache could make a move to Gosch's Paddock, however a deal is no guarantee of landing.

Melbourne is considering bringing in Josh Schache," Edmund revealed on SEN.

"They have some sort of an interest here."

Lobb talks underway with deadline incoming

In the penultimate day of the trade period, all eyes zero in on wantaway Docker Rory Lobb, who is searching for a move to the Kennel.

With Freo playing hardball on the tall, star Bulldog Josh Dunkley could prove key to fast forward the transaction, with discussions between the Dockers and Dogs underway this week, according to multiple reports.

The promising engagement in discussions is a step in the right direction for the Western Bulldogs, who are hoping to land Lobb and secure an extra offensive chess piece to help their attack heading into season 2023.

The Dogs are armed with Pick 11, 30, 49, 67 and 85 at their disposal and it is understood the Dockers are targeting their lowest draft selection, something that was straight batted by list management at Footscray.

Swans, Roos open to parting with top picks

More first-round pick swaps are expected to move hands this off-season, with North Melbourne and Sydney hoping to shift their draft hands.

According to AFL Media, the Kangaroos are open to offers for Pick 3, looking to bring in a wave of fresh talent by landing two more top-10 picks.

Sydney have shared their interest in packaging Picks 14 and 17 to move up in the draft and appear as a potential suitor for North's high pick, however the Roos may be eyeing a stronger hand in return for their second best selection.

Meek seeking move to Hawks

Contracted Fremantle youngster Lloyd Meek has reportedly thrown his name in the ring for a potential trade to Hawthorn following the Dockers' ability to land Luke Jackson at the trade table on Monday.

Meek now appears likely to be third in line for the rucking role, behind fellow tall Sean Darcy, meaning the purple and white side is set for the future with both he and Jackson working in tandem.

The lingering contract sitting over Meeks' head may burden his chances of the move coming to fruition as Freo still see the 24-year-old playing his role as a depth player for their WA-based side, per 7 News Perth.

Swans confirm new signature, rule out Crouch rumour

Swans GM Kinnear Beatson has detailed Sydney's off-season plans, speaking on the futures of Lewis Melican and Harry Cunningham, while dismissing Matt Crouch rumours.

Speaking on AFL Trade Radio, Beatson was confident that Melican would continue his career at Sydney, despite rival interest.

Beatson also confirmed that Cunningham would remain at the Swans, with the medium defender re-signing for another two years.

When asked about Adelaide's out-of-favour midfielder Crouch, Beatson was quick to shut down the rumours.
