LATEST: Port Adelaide has traded for defender Lewis Stevenson from West Coast in a deal involving three clubs which also sees David Rodan end up at Melbourne and the Eagles compensated with pick 88 in the draft.

Port Adelaide general manager football Peter Rohde said Stevenson had consistently pushed close to selection in the Eagles team in the past two seasons after playing 10 games in 2010, without getting further opportunities at senior level.

"Lewis has often been really close to selection in what is a very good West Coast line-up and was an emergency on several occasions in 2012, including in their semi-final," Rohde said.

Melbourne had earlier given up pick 88 in the AFL Draft to Port to secure Rodan, who was set to be de-listed by the Power.

Rodan, despite being given his informal marching orders recently, remained on the Power's list and it enabled Melbourne to pick up the veteran without having to draft him next month.

The Demons have been very active in the trade period, and in terms of picking up players from other clubs Melbourne has now signed up Chris Dawes (Collingwood), Shannon Byrnes (Geelong) along with Rodan.

The Tigers are close to sealing a deal to grab Kangaroos forward Aaron Edwards, according to a story on the Richmond website which did not specify what the 'Roos could get in return.

Meanwhile, Collingwood has picked up Carlton player, Jordan Russell for draft pick 71, which they earlier received from the Bulldogs in exchange for Tom Young.

"On behalf of everyone at the Carlton, we thank Jordan for his service over the past eight years and wish him all the best at his new football club," said Carlton General Manager of Football, Andrew McKay. 

And another day appears likely to pass with Kurt Tippett's desired trade to Sydney still nowhere near done, especially with the Crows under AFL investigation.

The Gold Coast Suns have declared they would be interested in luring Tippett to the club if Adelaide's talks with the Swans fall through.

UPDATE: The Gold Coast Suns will trade pick 37 to Fremantle in exchange for Greg Broughton and pick 60.

"Greg has been a fine representative of the Fremantle Football Club," general manager of player management Brad Lloyd said.

"We thank him for all his efforts at the club during his time here and wish him all the best for the future."

Also, Collingwood's Tom Young will go across to the Western Bulldogs.

The Western Bulldogs today confirmed 20-year-old Collingwood utility Tom Young will join the Club for its fourth round pick of 71.

Young moved to Melbourne as a 17-year-old in 2010 and in his first season won the Collingwood VFL best and fairest. He was subsequently drafted by the Magpies in the 2010 AFL Draft.

The 191cm-tall Sydney University recruit went on to play nine games in two seasons at Collingwood, including seven in 2012, predominantly as a defender.

List Manager Jason McCartney said Young's fierce competitiveness and clean hands in close are some of the key attributes of the utility.

"We see him as a long-term prospect after he showed really promising signs at Collingwood over the past couple of seasons, particularly with his willingness to take the game on and his cleanness around the contest," McCartney said.

*We will update this page as news comes through*

These are just some of the questions footy fans are asking with just all of Thursday and some of Friday (up to 2pm) remaining in the AFL's trade period.

The Eagles have made their intentions clear all along in regards to wanting to secure the services of Cripps, but won't budge on a trade that could make it happen - swapping defender Mitch Brown with the Saints to make it happen.

There's now reports West Coast have switched their focus to trading a third-round pick for Melbourne midfielder Cale Morton. The Demon could be seen by West Coast's footy department as a player who could curtail the loss of midfielder Koby Stevens, who was traded to the Bulldogs on Wednesday.

Speculation continues over the future of Essendon defender, Cale Hooker, on Thursday. The Herald Sun reports the Bombers could send Hooker to the Saints in a three-way trade which would potentially see Cripps end up an Eagle.

The Bombers are also believed to be in the hunt for the services of Gold Coast defender, Josh Toy. Hawthorn and the Western Bulldogs have also shown interest, AFL Media has reported.

Meanwhile, a deal to trade controversial Crow Tippett to the Swans may still go ahead despite an AFL investigation into his 2009 contract with Adelaide unlikely to be completed by the 2pm trade deadline.

Any trade Tippett would be involved in before the deadline could then be subject to change, one would think, if the league finds the Crows, Tippett and his manager, Peter Blucher, guilty of offences such as draft tampering and salary cap cheating.
