AFL trade news, rumours, live updates: Free agency period opens, offers, done deals, restricted and unrestricted free agents list – everything covered as it happens!
LET the moves begin.
The AFL exchange period gets underway on Friday with the opening of the restricted free agency offer and unrestricted free agency period.
We’ll have every confirmed offer and move in our live blog, as well as taking your trade questions. JOIN IN THE CHAT BELOW.
A number of big name players could receive offers or move clubs today including Tom Lynch, Andrew Gaff, Scott Lycett and Luke Dahlhaus.
Restricted free agents can move to the club of their choice, subject to the current club’s right of first refusal — as in whether the current club matches the offer. The current club has three days to decide whether to match.
Unrestricted free agents are just that and can move anywhere.
The restricted free agency offer and unrestricted free agency period ends on Friday October 12 at 5pm. The period to match offers for restricted free agents ends on Monday October 15 at 2pm.
The AFL trade period begins on Monday October 8 at 10am and ends on Wednesday October 17 at 8:30pm (for moves involving players; trades involving picks can be made until Friday November 16).
