WEEK two of the NAB AFL Trade Period kicks off on Monday and yet another Hawthorn champion is set to depart the club.

Just days after Sam Mitchell was traded to West Coast, Jordan Lewis is expected to be on his way out. That pair finished first and second in the Hawks' best and fairest this year.

Meanwhile, deals for Jaeger O'Meara, Dion Prestia and Bryce Gibbs are yet to be finalised. Paperwork can be lodged again from 9am on Monday until the end of trade period at 2pm on Thursday.

Until then,'s Trade Winds will wrap up all of the latest action every morning.

Lewis to the Demons

Star Hawk Jordan Lewis could become a Melbourne player as soon as Monday after quashing a possible move to Gold Coast, reports the Herald Sun.

This is despite the Hawks' earlier confidence that Lewis would stay.

A trade to play under Rodney Eade would have potentially satisfied the Suns' requirement for a senior player in return for injury-prone young gun Jaeger O'Meara.

Gold Coast was reportedly willing to pay Lewis more than what the Demons had planned.

The Hawks could use the assistance of Brisbane Lions to facilitate that trade, by giving up Billy Hartung and Brendan Whitecross for the Lions' No.21 selection. Hawthorn could then on-trade that pick, along with No.10, for O'Meara.

The Age reports the Lions have also sought the possibility of receiving Jono O'Rourke, who has been with the Hawks for two years after being traded by Greater Wester Sydney.

The Lions recently appointed former Hawthorn football manager Chris Fagan as their senior coach.

Lewis, 30, has a three-year offer on the table from the Demons and remains contracted to Hawthorn until the end of 2017.

Adelaide pursues bid for Gibbs

Rory Atkins was the latest player rejected by Carlton in the Crows' bid to arrange a swap for Bryce Gibbs, according to a report in The Age.

Adelaide would have given up Atkins, 22, along with pick No.13 in this year's NAB AFL Draft, however the Blues want a player the calibre of Charlie Cameron, Mitch McGovern or Brad Crouch.

Gibbs is contracted until the end of 2019 and the Blues are not willing to talk to the Crows, but will negotiate only through Gibbs' manager Nigel Carmody, says The Advertiser.

The newspaper says Adelaide hasn't considered recruiting either of Lions pair Tom Rockliff or Pearce Hanley as a fall-back option.

Gibbs holding up Marchbank

Carlton's negotiations in the Gibbs deal are holding up their potential acquisition of Greater Western Sydney defender Caleb Marchbank, reports The Age.

Carlton also want Jarrod Pickett from the Giants, who has expressed a desire to become a Blue.

James Stewart could also be involved in a package deal to the Blues.

A trade for Tuohy

Irishman Zach Tuohy remains set on joining Geelong, with a trade involving Darcy Lang on the cards, says a report in the Herald Sun.

That swap could also involve a future draft pick.

However, The Age says Lang is unwilling to move to the Blues.

Deledio to stay a Tiger

Richmond's Brett Deledio is likely to stay at Punt Road, according to the Herald Sun.

Deledio, 29, was interested moving to Geelong but a bulging salary cap and a lack of a suitable trade option has held that up. The Cats were not willing to give up midfielder Josh Caddy, in whom the Tigers had expressed interest.

The Age reports that if the Cats were to give up Caddy, they would want a second-round pick plus Deledio.

The Tiger will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of 2017.

In other news:

  • Ruckman Matthew Lobbe could end up at Richmond if the Tigers' bid to land Swans big man Toby Nankervis fails, says a report in the Adelaide Advertiser.
  • Collingwood's desire to reduce salary cap pressure means it will likely accept a very low NAB AFL Draft selection in return for Travis Cloke, says The Australian.
