Contracted Richmond midfielder Jack Graham is understood to have turned down the advances of Port Adelaide just days after touring the club's headquarters.

Graham has emerged as an in-demand name this off-season following Richmond's targeting and likely additions of GWS pair Jacob Hopper and Tim Taranto.

Their imminent arrivals at Punt Road had raised interest from rival clubs, including the Power, in Graham's services despite his contract status for next season.

The hard-nosed South Australian was spotted earlier this week meeting with Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley and other club officials at Alberton Oval, with a trade back to his home state seen to be gaining momentum.

However, according to's Riley Beveridge, Graham won't be pursuing a move to the Power this off-season.

Graham is understood to have informed the Tigers on Friday of his decision to decline Port Adelaide's advances and opportunities for a trade.

It is not yet known if Graham will meet with more rival clubs in the next week or whether he is set on fighting for his place in Damien Hardwick's midfield.

Adelaide were also linked to Graham in recent weeks, however their interest isn't seen to be as strong.

While Graham's decision comes as a blow for Port Adelaide, Hinkley is set to gain the signature of West Coast forward Junior Rioli, who has requested a trade to the club.

The Power were involved in the opening move of free agency in 2022, with winger Karl Amon departing to Hawthorn.

Port Adelaide received Pick 27 at this year's National Draft as compensation for the loss of Amon.
