Melbourne defender Sam Frost is set to leave the Demons during the upcoming trade period, and will likely request a move to Hawthorn.

According to Channel Seven's Tom Browne, Frost will ask for a move to the Hawks, following interest from Hawthorn and North Melbourne.

Frost finished ninth in the Demons' best and fairest on Monday night.

The 26-year-old played all 22 games for the Dees in 2019, and featured in 70 games for the club since making the move over from GWS at the end of the 2014 season.
