GWS youngster Hately requests trade

Out-of-contract Greater Western Sydney youngster Jackson Hately has requested a trade from the Giants.

Drafted in 2018, the South Australian midfielder has played 13 games across two seasons after being taken at pick 14 of a strong draft crop.

Adelaide are the frontrunners for his services. Hately turns 20 later this month.

"Jackson has informed the club of his hope to return to South Australia so we will now investigate trade options with a view to getting the best possible outcome for the Giants," GWS football manager Jason McCartney said.

Hately is one of several out-of-contract Giants including star forward Jeremy Cameron and fellow 2018 draftee Jye Caldwell, who has been courted by St Kilda. Another 2018 draftee, Xavier O'Halloran, is also out-of-contract.

Aidan Corr has already informed the club that he will leave as a free agent, with North Melbourne almost certainly the defender's new home.

Forward Jeremy Finlayson recently re-signed with the club.
