LATEST: Hawthorn has only received pick 66 in the AFL Draft as compensation for losing Tom Murphy and Clinton Young while St Kilda and Port Adelaide fared better for the loss of players.

St Kilda picked up pick No. 13 for Brendon Goddard's move to Essendon and the Power snared picks 30 and 31 as Danyle Pearce heads to Fremantle and Troy Chaplin joins Richmond.

West Coast was given pick 62 for Lynch's move to the Pies. Melbourne received pick 49 for losing Jared Rivers and Brent Moloney.

No compensation was given to Geelong (Shannon Byrnes to Melbourne), Adelaide (Chris Knights to Richmond) or Hawthorn for Murphy.

UPDATE: Essendon forward Scott Gumbleton will remain with the Bombers after agreeing to a new one-year deal, while Lachie Hansen will stay with North Melbourne for the next two years..

Gumbleton knocked back a two-year offer from the Western Bulldogs in favour of staying with Essendon.

The 24-year-old, who also drew interest from Fremantle, Melbourne and Carlton has played just 28 games since being drafted in 2006 as a result of injuries.

"The club has stuck by me with the injuries I have had and I am really passionate about the Essendon Football Club," Gumbleton said.

"While there were opportunities elsewhere, I have lots of good mates at the club and I am really confident in the direction that the team is heading."

Coach James Hird said the club was thrilled to have secured the exciting key forward ahead of the 2013 season.

"Scott has been incredibly unfortunate with the injuries he has acquired throughout his career, but there was no question in our mind that he remains a required player for the club," Hird said.

"We are really pleased that Scott has re-signed with the club. He a fantastic clubman and a great teammate and we look forward to him having a big pre-season campaign."

Earlier, Hansen resisted interest from Greater Western Sydney and Fremantle.

In other news, Richmond picked up selection 40 in the draft after making in a deal with Adelaide as part of an exchange for ruckman Angus Graham and the Tigers' selection 50.

Richmond now has four picks inside the first two rounds of the draft – 9, 29, 31 and 40.

"We would like to thank Angus for his contribution to the Richmond Football Club, and wish him all the best with his new opportunity at Adelaide," said Richmond's General Manager of Football, Craig Cameron.

"By gaining selection 40 in the draft, we are in a strong position to add some young talent to our list, which will complement the arrival of Chris Knights and Troy Chaplin in the free agency period."

Meanwhile, Adelaide has not yet reached an agreement with Sydney that would see Kurt Tippett end up with the Swans. The Crows said a deal would not be completed on Friday.

No club opted to take action in the trade period to give ex-Carlton players Bret Thornton or Jordan Russell a new home.

Free agents like Russell, Thornton and ex-Power player Steven Salopek can still join a club without nominating for the NAB AFL Draft after November 1 when delisted players are free to sign with any club, but compensation will not be awarded for players signed in this manner.

Unrestricted free agent, Raphael Clarke, also remained unsigned.

Clinton Young has left Hawthorn and will sign a three-year deal with Collingwood.

Despite a considerable offer made to Young by the Hawks, he has elected to depart the club under the AFL's free agency rules.  

"Clinton and his family were a big part of the Club and it's disappointing he has chosen to leave," Senior Coach Alastair Clarkson said.

"While it's disappointing to lose a member of our 2012 Grand Final team, and a long-time contributor to our club, player movement is a reality in the free agency market," Clarkson said.
