Adelaide forward Josh Jenkins has confirmed he wants to leave the Crows during the upcoming trade period.

Jenkins – who was a member of the Crows’ 2017 Grand Final side – has played 147 games for Adelaide since debuting with the club in 2012.

However, after a tough 2019 campaign that saw the 30-year-old play just 11 games (the fewest games in a season over the course of his career), Jenkins wants to move to Victoria to continue his career.

Adelaide released the following statement on their website on Wednesday morning.

Adelaide has mutually agreed with Josh Jenkins and his manager Paul Connors that the key forward will explore a move to another club during the upcoming trade period.

Crows General Manager of List and Strategy Justin Reid said it was the culmination of ongoing and amicable discussions.

“After recent conversations it became clear that it is in the best interests of both parties that Josh looks to reinvigorate his career at another club,” Reid said.

“We are committed to working closely with Josh and Paul to ensure there is an outcome suitable for both parties.”

The AFL trade period opens on October 7.

Fox Footy believes the Cats are currently the favourites to pick up the forward, and understand whichever club eventually lands Jenkins, will do so without having to give up too much.
