Hawthorn have confirmed that Tom Mitchell has not requested a trade away from the club, nor are they engaged in any talks with Collingwood about the future of the Brownlow Medallist.

The 29-year-old has been linked to a cross-town move to the Pies, despite being contracted until the end of the 2023 season.

Speaking on AFL Trade Radio, Hawks recruiting boss Mark McKenzie shed some light on Hawthorn and Mitchell's movements for the upcoming trade period.

"Tom's a contracted player," McKenzie said.

"There's been no trade request or anything like that and that's really where it sits at this point in time.

"We haven't gone through any hypotheticals from (Collingwood's) end; the facts that we know (are) there hasn't been anything significant come forward or anything from that regard.

"It's more some speculation ... but the facts are he's contracted and there's been no trade request at all."

McKenzie also confirmed the club's interest in Gold Coast's Jack Bowes and Fremantle's Lloyd Meek.

Meek, who has been linked to several other clubs throughout the year, is set to be the subject of discussions between Hawthorn and Fremantle when the trade period kicks off on Monday.

"There's definitely some interest in Lloyd, as happens every year with the ruck merry-go-round," McKenzie said.

"He's a contracted player so that sits with Freo. We've got some interest, there might be some discussions over the next week and a half, but he's a contracted player."

The Suns have reportedly offered up Jack Bowes alongside their Pick 7 selection as they attempt to ease some pressure on their salary cap.

The young Sun has played 83 games for the club across his career, with several clubs including North Melbourne, Geelong and Essendon expressing interest in the midfielder.

"From our point of view, that midfield area is important for us to find that right mix and Jack brings a little bit different with the way that he plays," McKenzie said.

"Definitely some interest, positionally, and obviously the right age from our group that's coming through, the age demographic fits as well. We'll explore that avenue and see where that goes."
