Mitchell trade to Collingwood “tracking well” as deadline approaches

Will Tom Mitchell end up at Collingwood in the next 24 hours?

Mitchell, 29, has been linked with the Pies this trade period as Collingwood look to bolster their midfield depth.

Despite having a year left on his contract, the Brownlow medalist looks set to be traded to the Pies after it was reported the Hawks are prepared to pay some of his wages for him to play elsewhere.

Commenting on the potential trade on Tuesday, Damian Barrett said that while there is still a bit to play for, it is “tracking well” for Mitchell to end up at the Pies.

“Just finding out if it’s going down today or tomorrow, a couple of deals that we’ve talked about and we hit Graham Wright up on that an hour ago about the Tom Mitchell options,” Barrett told. AFL Trade Radio.

“While he says there’s a little bit to play for, we got a feeling it was going to happen and we just keep hearing from people who know the situation that it’s still good for Mitchell to end up in Collingwood.”

Collingwood football manager Graham Wright confirmed the club’s interest in Mitchell but admitted he is unsure whether he will be a pie tomorrow night.

“I’m not sure that would be the short answer,” Wright told me AFL Trade Radio on Tuesday.

“We have an interest in Tom, Scott Pendlebury turns 35 in January, Taylor Adams had some injuries at the end of the year, we weren’t a great clearance or center bounce team this year, obviously Tom has been productive in that area throughout his career.

“We’ve entertained it and we like the look of it, but whether we can come to an agreement with Hawthorn is another thing.

“We’re still having conversations with them, but we’ll see where they go in the next 24 hours.”
