NATHAN KRAKOUER has retired from AFL football, after spending the last three seasons on the Power's list.

Krakouer started his career with Port Adelaide after being selected in the 2006 AFL Draft with pick 39.

He left the club at the end of 2010 to join Gold Coast, and then left the competition completely after the 2011 season, returning to Alberton in 2014 via the SANFL and then joining the club's AFL list between 2015 and 2017.

He played in the club's 2004 SANFL Grand Final tilt as a contracted SANFL player, but missed its last appearance against Sturt through injury.

He becomes the Power's first list change ahead of the upcoming free agency and trade period.

“Nathan has played some outstanding football for the club," Port's list manager Jason Cripps told portadelaidefc.com.au.

"Despite limited opportunity at AFL level this season, Nathan played a significant role as an expeirenced player helping the Magpies win through to the SANFL grand final."
