Port Adelaide midfielder Brendon Ah Chee has asked to be traded to West Coast during the current trade period.

The 23-year-old played just five games for the Power in 2017, and has featured in 27 games since making his debut in round three, 2015.

AFL.com.au reported Ah Chee's decision to seek a move away from the club last week, although it was confirmed on Monday by Port Adelaide list manager Jason Cripps.

"Ah Chee has indicated that he wants to get to West Coast," Cripps said.

"West Coast has got some interest in securing his services, so we'll just continue to work through with them to see if we can facilitate a deal, but today's discussion wasn't in any great detail."

In other trade news for the Power, they expect Melbourne forward Jack Watts to make a call on his playing future in the coming days, as he tosses up a number of possible destinations.

Along with the Power, Geelong and Sydney loom as bidders for Watts' services, and Cripps is expecting the Demon to nominate his preferred club by the end of the week. 

"I think Jack Watts is meeting with Sydney today or tomorrow, so our understanding is there will be some decision made this week," Cripps said.
