Port Adelaide winger Xavier Duursma is said to have garnered the interest of several Victorian clubs in the lead up the the 2023 AFL Trade Period.

Duursma has called Alberton home since being selected with the 18th pick of the 2018 draft, however, as a native of Foster in Gippsland, the lure of a move back to his state of origin could prove potent.

At present, the midfielder remains contracted until the end of the 2024 season, and injuries willing, is set to remain a key member of Ken Hinkley's plans to bring a second AFL flag back to the corner of Brougham Place and Queen Street.

Yet, as reported by Callum Twomey of AFL Media, an unspecified number of Victorian teams have raised interest in prising the 23-year-old loose during the exchange period.

Since debuting in Round 1 of the 2019 season, Duursma has laced the boots on a further 72 occasions, averaging 16.26 disposals, 4.49 marks and 2.22 inside 50s per game.

Last year, Duursma was joined at Alberton by his younger sister, Yasmin, after Port Adelaide spent pick 45 in the 2022 AFLW Draft to reunite the siblings.

Whether or not Duursma makes a move later this month, the Power are poised to be busy during the fortnight period, with each of Esava Ratugolea (Geelong), Brandon Zerk-Thatcher (Essendon) and Jordon Sweet (Western Bulldogs) having requested trades to the club within the past pair of weeks.

Ahead of the opening trade bell, Port Adelaide is currently armed with little more than picks 38, 44 and 71 at the 2023 AFL Draft in order to broker the trifecta of deals.
