St Kilda and Port Adelaide are rumoured to have put a trade option on the table, which would see four clubs working to assist Jake Carlisle and Charlie Dixon to their new homes.
The trade will aim to break the deadlocks between St Kilda and Essendon and Gold Coast and Port Adelaide.
The proposed trade is as follows:
St Kilda trade pick 5 to Port Adelaide for pick 10 and a future first round selection.
St Kilda trade pick 10 to Essendon for Jake Carlisle.
Port Adelaide trade pick 5 to Gold Coast for Charlie Dixon.
Last night it was rumoured that St Kilda would trade pick 5 to Essendon in exchange for Carlisle and pick 44.
Essendon quickly turned down St Kilda's initial trade proposal, in which the Saints were asking for two second round picks to compensate for the loss of their first round selection.
