MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JUNE 12: Ty Vickery of the Tigers kicks the ball during the 2016 AFL Round 12 match between the Richmond Tigers and the Gold Coast Suns at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on June 12, 2016 in Melbourne, Australia.

Vickery reportedly agrees deal with Hawthorn

Ty Vickery could become a Hawthorn player as early as Friday, with the Richmond forward agreeing to a three-year deal, according to the Herald Sun.

The restricted free agent had attracted interest from an interstate and a Melbourne-based club, but is determined to get to the Hawks after a positive meeting with coach Alastair Clarkson.

Vickery’s departure will net the Tigers either a second-round pick (currently No.25) or end of second round (No.37) pick as compensation, depending on his new contract with Hawthorn.

As it stands, Richmond doesn’t have a second-round selection after trading it last year to Gold Coast as part of the Tigers’ manouvering to secure Chris Yarran from Carlton.
