Collingwood star Dayne Beams has asked the Magpies for a trade to a Queensland club.
The Queenslander is contracted to Collingwood until the end of 2015.
His brother Claye plays for the Brisbane Lions, while the Gold Coast Suns could be an option for the midfielder.
The 24-year-old told the club his desire to seek a trade was due to family reasons.
“We want Dayne to stay,” Collingwood’s football director Rodney Eade said on Wednesday night in a statement.
“We understand his personal situation and will be working with him and his management, as we do all our players, to find an outcome that may give him more time with his family and remain a Collingwood player for 2015 and beyond.”
