The Brisbane Lions will have to give up more than pick no.4 if they are to bring Collingwood star Dayne Beams to the club, the Magpies say.
Collingwood list manager Derek Hine told AFL Trade Radio on Tuesday that the club would not accept pick no.4 only as compensation for the All-Australian midfielder.
“From our side of things we clearly rate Dayne as a player that’s just really moving into the prime of his career,” Hine said.
“Clearly he’s an elite player in the competition.
“It’s going to take a little bit more than pick four, put it this way.”
Hine backed coach Nathan Buckley’s stance that the Magpies wanted a like-for-like replacement for Beams.
“Either a ready-made player or the potential to be able to access a ready-made player via our first pick,” he said.
