Collingwood forward Oliver Henry is expected to request a trade Geelong in the coming days, a move that would see the former first-round draftee play alongside older brother Jack.

Henry became a Pie after being selected with the 17th pick of the 2020 National Draft, however, with Collingwood in the midst of luring Lion Daniel McStay and wantaway Giant Bobby Hill to the club, the 20-year-old's opportunities for growth in a black and white guernsey may soon be stunted.

According to reports from SEN's Sam Edmund, the young forward was suitably unimpressed by the Magpies' latest retention offer and is said to be keen to seek greener pastures.

“Ollie Henry is the other one, he wants to get to Geelong now,” Edmund said on Wednesday morning.

“The Henry camp is worried about Dan McStay and (Bobby) Hill coming into that forward line.

“The contract offer from Collingwood didn’t wow them anyway, so all signs now point to the Cats, where brother Jack is in his ear of course to get him down there.”

An expression of interest in Henry's services would see Geelong's plans for life after Tom Hawkins suddenly given life of their own.

Recent reports suggest that Henry is also being pursued by Fremantle - a club keen to bolster their own forward stocks at the trade table.

Henry has donned a Collingwood guernsey on 25 occasions since debuting for the club in Round 1 of the 2021 season.

The Geelong Falcons product has slotted 28.23 across the course of his tenure at the AIA Centre.

Though listed as a defender, Henry's older brother Jack has also spent time in the forward half for the Hoops, kicking 11 goals throughout his past pair of seasons.

At present, Geelong will enter the exchange period armed with picks 18, 36, 46, 49, 54, 60, 72 and 90 in an effort to broker deals for both Henry and Giants youngster Tanner Bruhn.
