Chris Yarran is expected to leave the Blues in the trade period after requesting a trade, however, he may yet stay at Princes Park.

Carlton football operations manager Andrew McKay said that he isn’t on his way out just yet.

“I wouldn’t say he’s definitely leaving,” said McKay on SEN on Tuesday.

“There’s a bit of talk around that he wants to go to Richmond, but they haven’t approached us at all and he is still a contracted player.

“Certainly nothing definite there.”
