Adelaide Crows defender Fischer McAsey is reportedly set to request a trade back to Victoria.

According to SEN's Sam Edmund, the former Pick 6 is "almost certain" to hand in a trade request at the end of the season.

Victorian cubs and now beginning to circle the 20-year old, with personal family reasons also believed to be factoring into his decision.

It comes after AFL journalist Jon Ralph reported last week that McAsey, who is uncontracted beyond 2021, has already drawn interest from Melbourne clubs.

“He’s had an interrupted pre-season but there are some Melbourne clubs that are already asking about him,” Ralph told Fox Footy.

“He’s uncontracted by the end of the year so it’s going to be interesting to see how his season goes.”

McAsey was drafted out of Caulfield Grammar with Pick 6 in the 2019 AFL draft and made his debut in Round 1 of last year.

However, the backman was not able to establish himself into Adelaide's best 22 as he now looks to move back to his home state.

He did not feature in the Crows' pre-season game despite injuries to Daniel Talia (knee), Tom Doedee (groin) and Jake Kelly (hamstring).
