Port Adelaide's Karl Amon is interested in a return back to his home state of Victoria, with two big clubs emerging as possible suitors.

Hawthorn and St Kilda have expressed their interest in the signing the wingman to their squad for 2019 and beyond.

Amon is currently still contracted for 2019, but it is understood by Amon has conveyed his desire to return home, a request Port is happy to do if the right trade is offered.

It's also understood the Hawks and Saints are the two clubs in the box seat to get Amon, with the Hawks recently meeting with him.

The 23-year-old has played 42 games over the five seasons he's been at the Power since being picked number 68 in the 2013 draft.

Amon only played six games in 2018 after spending most of the season playing in the SANFL.

The wingman was also plagued by injury throughout this year, sustaining a concussion in round seven then suffering a season-ending knee injury against GWS just a week after being recalled to senior side in round 18.

Amon underwent surgery to fix the lateral meniscus tear and will soon begin running before partaking in the pre-season.
