West Coast premiership ruckman Scott Lycett is poised to become a Port Adelaide player once his passes a medical on this troublesome hip.
Lycett is expected to fly to Adelaide as early as today for talks with the Power and his family before returning to Perth on Friday to meet with the Eagles ahead of the John Worsfold Medal.
The Power are believed to have offered the 203cm giant a five year deal worth in the vicinity of $3 million.
Lycett is a restricted free agent, which means the Eagles can match any offer, but are expected to allow the 26-year-old to return to his home state.
Speaking after the Eagles premiership triumph, Lycett said he wanted to enjoy the Eagles success before making a decision on his future.
“That will all take care of itself in the next few days, so I am just going to enjoy a grand final win because it doesn’t come around very often,” Lycett said after the grand final.
Lycett was recruited by the Eagles with pick 29 in the 2010 National Draft. He played junior football for the Port Adelaide Magpies.
The Eagles have already held talks with with Western Bulldogs premiership big man Jordan Roughead, St Kilda’s Tom Hickey and Greater Western Sydney’s Rory Lobb as replacements for Lycett.
