Fremantle and Melbourne still may work out a trade for Dees forward Jesse Hogan, despite the Dockers reportedly pulling out of the race late last week.

On Friday, Fremantle’s footy boss Peter Bell released a statement suggesting they had cooled their interest on the 23-year-old, although the Herald Sun’s Sam Edmund believes Bell has flown in to Melbourne to complete the deal, although it’ll still be on Fremantle’s terms.

“The Dockers aren’t going to be able to give up 11 and a future second-rounder, Melbourne won’t accept that,” Edmund told SEN Breakfast.

“My mail is pick five on its own is going to get it done.

“The Brisbane Lions need to come to the party to get Lachie Neale done. The Dees will then trade pick five for Steven May.

“It will be out Hogan, in May effectively. I think Melbourne will be happy with that, that’s what I’m hearing.”


  1. So pick 5 will go from Brisbane to Freo to Melbourne to Gold Coast, leaving Gold Coast with picks 2, 3 and 5 at the end of it? Is that correct?
