Collingwood have exchanged pick 22 with Fremantle for both the 27th selection at this year's draft and a future fourth round choice.

The trade that was initially raised by Callum Twomey of AFL Media appears to have been made in an effort for the Dockers to haul in Geelong's Jordan Clark.

Said deal has been officially ticked off the league ahead of midday AEST.

Despite remaining contracted to the Cats for the 2022 season, the 20-year-old Clark has already met with Fremantle officials during this off-season in an effort to return home across the Nullarbor.

While this latest deal has since been completed, it is yet to be seen whether the 22nd selection will be enough to satisfy the pivot city side given the Hoops' previous asking price of pick 8 to land Clark's services.

Although a former first-round selection, said bartering price was quickly rebuffed by Fremantle's general manager Peter Bell, as the Mandurah-born dasher only managed 11 appearances for Chris Scott's side in 2021.

Should the impasse between the two clubs over Clark continue, this latest addition to the Dockers' draft hand could well become a part of the deal to send Adam Cerra to Carlton.

As it stands, the club representing the purple portion of Perth's draft hand currently stands at picks 8, 19, 22, 61, 69 and 84.

This arsenal was bolstered earlier on Thursday morning when Will Brodie and three selections were collected after sending a set of future third and fourth round selections to the Suns. 

While Cerra is all but certain to return to Victoria this off-season, the looming addition of Clark and the already secured Brodie will add further depth to Justin Longmuir's youthful roster ahead of their efforts to return to the September action in 2022.
