Gold Coast and West Coast have swapped draft picks hours before the trade deadline.

West Coast have traded pick 50 and their 2018 first-rounder to Gold Coast, in exchange for pick 21, pick 26, pick 37 and Gold Coast's 2018 second-rounder.

It strengthens West Coast's position in this year's draft as they seek to inject more youth into their side.

Perhaps, more crucially, it gives Gold Coast an extra first rounder, which could come into play as they seek to land Fremantle midfielder Lachie Weller.

Weller requested a trade from the Dockers earlier in the week.
