Eagle Andrew Gaff appears to be set to move to North Melbourne after Western Australia correspondent Tim Gossage spoke on SEN this morning.
Gossage was asked whether he thought Gaff would stay or go, and he gave a pretty definitive answer.
“Go. North Melbourne. I think it is a done deal, I think the West Coast have sort of started to realise that,” Gossage said.
“I do think he hadn’t made up his mind prior to Saturday but I think Saturday does make up his mind in a strange type of way. I think he feels that he has missed that opportunity and maybe it is time to remark the card and try and do what some of his teammates done on the weekend.
“Maybe a club like North Melbourne on the up, showed some signs that he might be part of that in the next two-to-three years.”
Gossage also revealed that Geelong star Tim Kelly looks set to join the reigning premiers West Coast, saying the WA native’s move to the Eagles was a “done deal.”
Speaking about Melbourne full forward Jesse Hogan, Gossage suggested that a move out of Melbourne back to WA was imminent, with Fremantle the likely destination.
“100 percent (back to Freo). He has told Simon Goodwin absolutely to his face, or to his ear at least, that he wants to be traded back to WA. I dare say there is no spot for him at West Coast and the priority is probably not their forward line,” Gossage said.
Gossage also added that two WA players will be leaving, with Scott Lycett bound for Port Adelaide and Fremantle star Lachie Neale will be leaving the Dockers in the trad period.
The NAB AFL Trade Period begins on Monday October 8th, with free agency to open on Friday.
