Carlton look set to sign forward Jason Tutt in the pre-season draft after the Western Bulldogs agreed to release the 23-year-old.
The Blues attempted to sign Tutt and Liam Jones during the trade period, however only Jones made the move across to Princes Park in October.
Tutt’s manager Nick Gieschen told the Herald Sun that the speedster is also headed for Carlton.
“He is definitely going to Carlton, we have got it sorted out in the last few days,” Gieschen said.
“The Dogs wanted to give the new coach the chance to sit down with him, but they knew he was keen to go so they released him.”
Tutt has played 26 games and kicked 22 goals for the Bulldogs since being drafted at pick 31 in the 2009 national draft.
He will become the fifth player Carlton have picked up from rival clubs this off-season, following the arrivals of Kristian Jaksch and Mark Whiley (both GWS), Matthew Dick (Sydney Swans) and Jones.
