Dayne Beams could join the Brisbane Lions as early as Tuesday afternoon.
Collingwood star midfielder finally looks set to join the Brisbane Lions after three weeks of negotiations.
Magpies president Eddie McGuire expects the deal to be finalised by Tuesday afternoon.
The Lions look set to off-load youngster Jack Crisp as well as picks 5 and 25 in the AFL draft.
Collingwood will then recruit North Melbourne midfielder Levi Greenwood using the second-round trade handed to them by the Lions.
Essentially, the Magpies will receive Greenwood, Crisp and pick no.5 for Beams.
Beams requested a trade to a Queensland club during grand final week to reportedly be closer to his ill father.
The five-way deal also includes new homes for Collingwood’s Heritier Lumumba, Geelong’s Travis Varcoe and Melbourne’s Mitch Clark.
Lumumba will join Melbourne, while Clark has signed with the Cats, who will then release Varcoe to Collingwood.
“I think it’ll get done this afternoon, it’s all been agreed I think,” Collingwood president Eddie McGuire said on Triple M radio.
“The five-way (deal) will go through with everyone included.
“Heritier Lumumba going to Melbourne. Travis Varcoe to Collingwood, Mitch Clark to Geelong, and Beams going (to Brisbane).”
