The Giants have given a simple one-word response to suggestions star forward Toby Greene's name has been raised as a potential trade target this off-season

GWS have already lost duo Tim Taranto and Bobby Hill in the opening few days of the trade period, with the pair joining Richmond and Collingwood respectively.

The New South Wales side are also resigned to the thought of moving on midfield pair Jacob Hopper and Tanner Bruhn in the coming days as they too seek moves to Victoria.

Adding to the club's frustrations since their disappointing 2022 campaign, star names in Nick Haynes and Lachie Whitfield have also been raised this week, while Greene's name is the latest to be included in the rumour mill.

Speaking on Wednesday night, 7 News' Tom Browne revealed, and quickly dashed, reports of rival clubs seeing Greene as an attainable asset in 2022 given he may be left "frustrated" by the ongoing list changes.

"Toby Greene's name came up today, the star Giant," Browne said.

"I think several clubs are of the view he's a bit frustrated that Hopper and Taranto have both gone, or will go, to the Tigers.

"He's got four years to run on a deal worth north of a million dollars a year, he's also the Giants' coveted co-captain."

In response to questions surrounding Greene's future, GWS director Jimmy Bartel was quick to extinguish any suggestions Greene, along with Haynes and Whitfield, could find a new club for 2023.

Suggesting the reports came from those that may enjoy 'kite flying', Bartel gave a short answer in response to the rumours.

"No," Bartel said on 3AW. 

"Let out the reel."

Greene is currently contracted to GWS until the end of 2026, while Haynes and Whitfield are also signed to the Giants until 2024 and 2027 respectively.

While the Giants are expected to broker trades for Hopper and Bruhn, newly-appointed coach Adam Kinglsey is expected to gain at least one new name in the form of Melbourne small forward Toby Bedford.

Kingsley will also welcome an array of young talent through the draft this year, with the Giants currently holding four picks in the top 20 selections for the 2022 National Draft.
