Damian Barrett Drops Sam Mitchell BOMBSHELL
Triple M's Damian Barrett has dropped the biggest bomb of the trade period.
Barrett says that he believes Hawthorn champion Sam Mitchell will play for the Eagles next year.
“The 5-time best and fairest winner of the Hawthorn football club and a man who probably sits very comfortably amongst the top 4 or 5 players to ever play for that great and mighty football club has now got his head around playing for the West Coast Eagles in 2017," Barrett said on Triple M this morning.
“Beyond that there will be a coaching career for Sam Mitchell at that footy club.”
Mitchell has spoken about the shock news saying "I'll be a very happy footballer next year whichever club that is at."
The 33-year-old also said that "I've got no idea what happens from here but I'm glad it's been explored."
