Collingwood have made an offer to Brisbane to secure former Pie Dayne Beams in the trade period, according to The Age’s Jake Niall and Michael Gleeson.

The initial offer from the 2018 grand finalists is reportedly their first round pick, pick 18 and a future second round pick for the gun midfielder.

The Lions appear to be unwilling to take on board any Collingwood players as part of a package deal for Beams, forcing the Magpies to upgrade their deal.

Beams has requested a trade, however manager Paul Connors said this morning he would be open to staying if the Lions could not get the right deal.

“If a deal doesn’t get done, he’ll stay there, and that’s why everyone’s a bit obsessed whether he’s going to demand or ask for a trade home,” Connors said.

“I don’t think he has to but behind the scenes, I think there’s some really mature conversations happening, and it’d have to be very much weighted in the Lions’ favour for anything to be done, so let’s just wait and see.

“Dayne would be open to it but he’s very happy to stay at the Lions as well.”


  1. “He’s very happy to stay at the Lions as well”! What? He’s got two more years on his comtract and he’s very publicly recommitted at the Lions B&F. He’s a contracted, required player and 18 and a future 2nd draft pick is not a good deal for the Lions! Wondering what his teammates are thinking. They voted him in as Captain this year. Where is loyalty to his teammates?

  2. Well excuse me but I seem to remember him only wanting to go there because of his sick father and the club that loved him and he loved back did the right thing and let him go, he was contracted and 4 years younger ?

    • They didn’t ‘let him go’. They were compensated more than fairly, what they’ve offered in return is an insult.

      • Yeah sorry mate you’re right, it’s an insult to Collingwood, players such as Anthony Stephens, Ryce Shaw, Leah Colbert, Leroy Jetta, Brody Grundy, Issac Heeney, Luke Shuey, Alex Rance, Daniel Kerr, all these champions were previous pick 18’s, and with this Draft allegedly the best ever, why would anyone want a soon to be 29 year old, rather than a 18 year old future legend ? PLEASE

  3. The melb commentators are having a field day of delusion on this one. If collingwoid stuck on offers. Think of a straight swap for sidebottom. If not value an offer they wuld accept and then add 5% for the importance of leadership lions need. Theres the deal!!!

  4. Pies don’t need beams he was fantastic for us in the past but having to play for the busted ass lions has left him lackluster I think the offer collingwood made was a fair deal considering where we sit atm. Our 2018 side will be hardened veterans in 2019 beams only adds to nostalgia not playing strength lions can keep him if they want
