AFL trade period updates: Friday 11 October

* It may take some time yet before Essendon forward Stewart Crameri finds his way to the Western Bulldogs. Crameri's manager Paul Connors admitted on Friday that the 25-year-old was all but certain to leave the Bombers. It's believed Essendon are striving to get more than the Bulldogs' No.22 draft pick in exchange for the reliable goalkicker.

"There's a lot of options, but I'd like to think (the deal will happen)," Connors said of afl.com.au’s Trade Radio on Friday.

"They (the Bombers) think he's worth more than what the Western Bulldogs are prepared to offer.

"I would have thought that one is going to drag out for a while yet.

"He's a good player, there's lots of interest, but I think he'd love to end up at the Bulldogs."

 St Kilda is eyeing off Greater Western Sydney's No.1 draft selection. Clearly determined to rebuild the club’s list with a host of high draft selections, the Saints have already off-loaded ruckman Ben McEvoy to Hawthorn.

The exact terms of that trade are still to be determined but St Kilda boldly parted ways with the big man as as part of a move that will see them end up with three draft picks inside the top 20.

Seemingly not content with those high picks, the Saints have admitted they want the No.1 pick overall."We have approached GWS on pick one, but they are reluctant to trade this selection and have not provided any indication as to what they would be seeking," St Kilda’s head of football Chris Pelchen said during a live chat on saints.com.au.

"We would love to secure a top 10 pick, but think it's highly unlikely as these are difficult to attain. We remain hopeful and determined of securing another top 20 selection."

*The name of St Kilda veteran Nick Dal Santo is one that continues to dominate during the AFL trade period. Thanks to ongoing speculation that the Saints could part ways with several of their seasoned players, the 29-year-old midfielder is well and truly in the spotlight.

Dal Santo's manager Tom Petroro on Friday had no choice but to answer questions about the silky-smooth runner on Friday. He says a decision on the player’s future could be some days away.

Nick Riewoldt and Nick Dal Santo

"There's a chance he could stay, there's also a chance he could move," Tom Petroro told afl.com.au’s Trade Week Radio. "Without sitting on the fence too much we need to see how things will unfold and I'd hope within the next seven days it'd be a bit clearer on what's going to unfold.

"I will say that throughout this process Nick was aware there were two options and that was staying or going. Nick's never gone through the process basically saying one out 'I'm staying at St Kilda or I'm going to North Melbourne'.

"He's understandable that each party needs to win out of the situation and until we get to a decent compromise, we're still not sure how it will unfold."

 North Melbourne fullback Scott Thompson has been rewarded for the best season of a burgeoning AFL career with a contract extension running until the end of 2017. The All-Australian fullback was already locked away for 2014. He joins Ben Cunnington and Aaron Black who also agreed to extensions until 2017 and forward Lindsay Thomas, who penned a new deal until 2016. READ MORE


DONE DEALS

Ben McEvoy (Hawthorn) Big-bodied 24-year-old ruckman swapped from St Kilda for a draft pick and pick 17.

Shane Savage (St Kilda) Pacy midfielder/forward leaves Hawthorn with pick 17 as part of the Ben McEvoy trade after 56 games.

Lance Franklin (Sydney) The Hawthorn forward will sign a contract worth about $10 million over nine years in a deal no one, including GWS, saw coming.

Dale Thomas (Carlton) Set to join Carlton on a four-year agreement at nearly $700,000 a season, an offer the Pies are highly unlikely to match.

Eddie Betts (Adelaide) Carlton forward accepted a four-year offer of about $2m from the Crows.

Colin Sylvia (Fremantle) The Demon No.3 draft pick to join Ross Lyon's pursuit of a premiership.

Shane Mumford (GWS) Sydney ruckman has accepted a three-year deal with Giants.

Matt White (Port Adelaide) White has left Richmond to join Port Adelaide on a three-year deal.

Shaun Hampson (Richmond) The back-up Carlton ruckman goes to Punt Road in exchange for the Tigers' second round pick, No.28 overall.

  • I really hope North don't trade Delaney to the saints if the Dal Santo deal falls through. After all, a bit of goodwill is required from both parties to come up with mutually beneficial trades, and the saints seem to be adamant they want Delaney but dancing around the issue of getting Dal santo to North.

    • St Kilda rate Delaney quite highly otherwise a 3 year offer would not have been made. He is only 24 and is better than Firrito and Grima. His AFL record is very good and it will hurt North losing him. Worth at least a third round pick as key position backmen don't fall off the tree. Del Santo 30 soon and at best 2 or 3 seasons left. Fair deal as follows;
      North pick up Del Santo as free agent and St Kilda gain pick 22 as compensation. St Kilda get Delaney in exchange for their 3rd round pick. This is fair for all parties, now settle it.

      • If I was Nicky Dal I'd be getting stright out of that toxic environment called St Kilda that the Fraud Watters and the snake oil salesman Pelchen are orchestrating. The way these two fools are going I'd dare say St Kilda won't be the same St Kilda in five years time. Be very very worried

      • There would be a dozen mature age walk ups playing in the WAFL right now, but the AFL clubs are still hesitant. Havent they learnt from blokes like Priddis, Podsiadly and perhaps Barlow. These guys can hit the ground running & are young enough to return value.

        If you look at all the young players drafted over the last 20 years, how many amount to nothing. I cant tell you its heaps. Mature age players are more hardened, have played against men not sticks, and have better experience. They are there, we see them every weekend. I would imagine the SANFL is the same. These two comps are not utilized properly. They are both powerful in terms of mature football quality. And Im talking about players in their early 20's with around 3-4 solid seasons of league football.

        • So true, if you go through the top 30 national draft picks over the last 10 years only 40-50% go on to become regular senior players.
          Amazingly it's simillar for players picked between 31-60, ie roughly 40%.
          Only 60% of top 10 draft picks go on to carve out a decent career, say 100+ games.
          Makes the case all the more compelling to try and pick up ready made footballers with hardened bodies/attitudes.
