After much rumour and speculation, Essendon have confirmed that star key forward Joe Daniher will seek a trade out of the club, with his destination the Essendon released a statement on their website on Saturday afternoon which confirmed that Daniher would seek a trade , but the comments provided

Essendon star Joe Daniher has formally requested a trade to Sydney amid widespread speculation the news was coming. The 25-year-old has cited lifestyle reasons as the driving factor Joe Daniher of the Bombers celebrates a goal during the 2019 round 5 match against the North Melbourne Kangaroos.

Club great Matthew Lloyd says Daniher cannot be replaced, while Daniher's former teammate Brendon Goddard has slammed the key forward for how he approached his initial injury rehabilitation.

Goddard says Daniher's request will probably encourage fellow forward Orazio Fantasia to go ahead with his bid for a trade to Port Adelaide.

Daniher was named All-Australian and won the club's best and fairest award two years ago but has only played 11 games over the past two seasons because of ongoing groin problems.

Daniher officially requests trade to Swans

  Daniher officially requests trade to Swans Essendon star Joe Daniher has confirmed what many have thought for months by requesting a trade to the Sydney Swans.The news comes after eyebrows were raised earlier in the season when Daniher was spotted meeting Swans CEO Tom Harley while visiting his surgeon in Sydney.

Daniher , 25, who has played for seven years at Essendon, has told the Dons that he wants a trade to the Swans for lifestyle reasons. He wishes to live in Sydney. He informed the club of his decision in the past couple of days. Essendon, however, will play hard-ball on a trade and wants him to remain with

Unbeknownst to both clubs, the trading of Daniher , a farm boy from Ungarie in NSW's Riverina, after 19 games for the Swans, would transform the histories of both clubs Now, as Terry's gifted nephew Joe Daniher seeks a trade to Sydney – the club that South Melbourne became in 1982 – the Daniher

Daniher, who has a year left on his contract, cited lifestyle on Saturday when he confirmed he wants to join Sydney.

But on Monday's opening morning of the trade period, Bombers list manager Adrian Dodoro said they do not plan to do a deal.

"It's our intention to keep Joe - All-Australian centre half-forward, best-and-fairest winner, coming into the peak years," Dodoro said.

"We have expressed to him and his management team we will be doing everything possible to keep him.

Lloyd said in a newspaper column Essendon should only trade Daniher if it means gaining another key forward who can lead their attack.

"Failure to do so would likely see the Bombers treading water again and the finals-winning drought will almost certainly extend to a 16th season," Lloyd said in The Age.

The logic to Cox talks

  The logic to Cox talks The Mason Cox trade discussions between Collingwood and Essendon reveal realities about both clubs. The Bombers know two things about their list (well they clearly know a lot more than two but we’ll stick to two for now). One is of course that Joe Daniher has asked for a trade and so part of considering whether to accede to his request they have to look at the ramifications. So that means they have to look at not only what draft picks he is worth but if he is not at the club next year then what player or players can play his role.One of these contingencies is Mason Cox.

Essendon must stand strong and not trade Daniher to Sydney unless the deal sees them land a like-for-like replacement to become the central figure in the club's forward line next season. Failure to do so would likely see the Bombers treading water again, and the finals-winning drought will almost certainly

Joe Daniher has reportedly told Essendon he wants a trade to the Swans. “The Club acknowledges the reason behind this request from Joe, however he is a contracted It comes after Bombers legend Tim Watson earlier backflipped on his prediction that Daniher would be remaining at the Bombers.

"Essendon cannot go into season 2020 with a forward line led by Shaun McKernan and Mitch Brown. As competitive and honest as they are, they are role players who play secondary roles to the No.1 forward.

"Essendon must play hardball with him and the Swans."

With Daniher injured, Lloyd pointed out Jake Stringer had topped their goalkicking over the past two seasons with only 30 and 33 goals.

Goddard was scathing, saying Daniher owed his teammates and the club.

"The grass is always greener, Joey," Goddard said on RSN927.

"As much as the injuries affected him, I think he could have gone about it in a better way with his rehab, particularly the first time around (last year).

"He may still have been in this situation ... but at the time I didn't think he dedicated himself hard enough to recovering and rehab and give himself the best chance to get up and play.

"That's why it's a bit disappointing."

Fantasia is also weighing up his future, with strong speculation he will seek a trade to Port.

"I think sadly it might make his (Fantasia's) decision a little bit easier," Goddard said of Daniher.

Blues still hope to snare Martin in AFL .
Carlton missed out on their two small forward targets in the trade period, but say the door remains open on Gold Coast's Jack Martin.But Blues list manager Stephen Silvagni remains bullish about picking up Martin for nothing through the national or pre-season draft.
