West Coast will seek to demote youngster Brant Colledge to the club’s rookie list after failing to field any viable offers for the contracted midfielder.
Colledge, who turns 21 this week, requested a move away from the club a fortnight ago due to a lack of opportunities. Essendon inquired about obtaining the contracted West Australian, but decided not to seek a trade.
Colledge is contracted for 2016, and as such would need to be picked up in the rookie draft if delisted by West Coast, which it’s understood is the club’s intention.
The 192cm Colledge, who averaged 23 disposals per game for the Eagles’ affiliate East Perth in the WAFL, was restricted to just one AFL game in 2015, following three matches in 2014. He was initially drafted from Perth at pick 45 in the 2012 draft.
West Coast did manage to complete one trade with Essendon during the trade period, acquiring fringe ruckman Jonathan Giles and pick 62 from the Bombers on Monday, handing the Dons pick 57 in return. The Eagles also lost vice-captain Scott Selwood to Geelong as a free agent, as well as veteran midfielder Matt Rosa, who has landed at Gold Coast.
West Coast had earlier traded ruckman Callum Sinclair to Sydney for speedster Lewis Jetta.
