PORT ADELAIDE forward Chad Wingard has informed the club that he wishes to explore a potential move away from Alberton during the ongoing NAB AFL Trade Period.

Wingard is a restricted free agent at the end of the 2019 season.

 Port Adelaide General Manager - Football, Chris Davies said “As we’ve mentioned from the beginning of the trade period, the only way that the Port Adelaide Football Club would consider a trade for Chad Wingard, is if Chad requested to explore his options at another club.”

“Chad has now informed us of his want to explore the opportunity that Hawthorn have presented him. However, he is also aware that unless an acceptable trade can be struck, that he will be playing for Port Adelaide in 2019.”

Davies added “Unless Port Adelaide is suitably compensated, a trade will not happen.”
