Melbourne coach Paul Roos says he doesn’t expect a fall out between former captain Jack Trengove and the club following the midfielder’s failed trade to Richmond.
Roos said the 23-year-old had no issues with the Demons actions during the course of the proposed trade, which was aborted after Trengove failed a medical test.
“It wasn’t a fire sale. He needed to be comfortable with it, we needed to be comfortable with it, but it was far from being a done deal. Jack’s addressed it already, he doesn’t have a problem with it at all,” Roos is quoted as saying by Fairfax Media.
“It was never a case of him being thrown out of there and that he wasn’t going to play for the Melbourne Football Club.”
In other Demons news, the club this morning announced the signing of discarded Power midfielder Ben Newton.
The 22-year-old made his debut and played in four matches for the Power in 2014, but shone in the SANFL.
Newton struggled to break into a talented Power midfield and decided to pursue his opportunities elsewhere.
