Geelong list manager Stephen Wells has confirmed young midfielder Jarrad Jansen will be traded to Brisbane.

The 20-year-old requested a trade last month after two seasons with the Cats.

Jansen is yet to play a senior game with Geelong and cited a lack of opportunity as his reason for looking for a fresh start.

He enjoyed a promising year at VFL level, finishing second in Geelong’s best and fairest.

Jansen was selected with pick No. 36 in the 2013 National Draft.
