A Perth radio station has claimed Brownlow medallist Nat Fyfe has agreed a multi-million dollar deal to play with St Kilda from next AFL season.

The Dockers have declined to comment on the veracity of the claim, attributed to a loose-lipped Saints board member. Brad Fitzgerald, co-host of the ‘Carmen & Fitzi’ program on WA-based radio station 96FM, said he had a “massive scoop” on the future of the 2015 Brownlow medallist.

“The offer is worth $1.5 million a season and it is - as far as legally wise - it’s virtually accepted,” he said on Monday morning.

“He can’t sign yet but it’s basically a done deal and he is going to St Kilda.”

Fitzgerald said he had been told the news by a Saints executive. “I can’t name names but this has come from a high-ranking board member of St Kilda,” he said.

I'm going to be taking most of these reports with a grain of salt, but the longer he remains unsigned the more rumours will circulate :-X

I'm always suspicious when there are lines like "I can’t name names "

Like these stories will believe it when signed. The Kurt Tippett one still grates on me.

nah we're good blokes, we'll let you keep Neale :P

I think it could actually be good for Freo. good chance you'll get a couple of good picks off us and think it'd be a good way to bring in some quality youth

but yeah, I don't believe it just yet. is interesting though

Everyone knows Saints have a war chest, and Fyfe's name has been thrown around already

The only difference here is that some random radio person is saying it's official, and of course we won't know anything until the end of the year, so it's just media buzz, nothing more

Nah we'd rather keep Fyfe. Rare that a couple of good picks would = 1x Fyfe.

This. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush right?

Also being a free agent, if he was acquired through RFA Freo would only be able to recover one compo pick wouldn't they? Would Freo have the means to match and offer and force a trade in this case?

Yeah my question is pretty much if the Saints were to offer $1.5m a year to Fyfe then would Fremantle be able to match that. Must have been saving their pennies if thats the case.

We've been saving for about 10 years! haha.

But it wasn't through lack of trying to spend

Threw everything at Mitch Clark, Buddy, Cloke and any other key forward available

And landed no-one

If you go through our list and think who is on big money... there isn't many. Not with Pav gone, Sandi and other seniors on the way out

The Herald Sun has confirmed the Saints have no interest in Fyfe and will instead zero in on other trade targets including Greater Western Sydney midfield jet Josh Kelly.
