Triple M's Damian Barrett has given the latest news on the status of the Dayne Beams and Dylan Shiel trades.
DAMO'S LATEST NEWS:
Jars and Blewie landed on Triple M's Rush Hour with a few hours to go before the deadline, and with a few big deals yet to be completed.
Triple M Footy newsbreaker Damian Barrett joined the guys on the line and shared the latest news with hours to go.
"The big couple of deals still to be done, Shiel to Essendon and also Beams to Collingwood," he explained.
"They are both in play, yet to be officially dropped."
Barrett gave the latest on the standings for all three deals, including what each club was offering to secure their trade targets.
He said particularly there was a "hassle" with the Dylan Shiel to Essendon deal, expecting the Bombers to up their offer before the deadline ends.
"There's no doubt there's a hassle with it. It would have been done by now if it wasn't," he said.
"You don't get someone of the quality and calibre of Dylan Shiel to nominate you after a fierce bidding process and then let him slip through your grasp."
