GREATER Western Sydney defender Sam Frost looks set to depart the club after requesting a trade back to Victoria.
The 21-year-old is believed to have informed the Giants of his desire to seek a return to a club in his home state where his family lives.
Frost, the younger brother of Collingwood backman Jack, played 16 games for the Giants this season, for a career tally of 21 over three seasons.
The former rookie managed to hold down a key defensive post for much of the season in the absence of injured Giants Phil Davis, Nick Haynes and Tim Mohr, but can also be used in attack.
Frost, who is out of contract, was drafted from TAC Cup side Sandringham Dragons, with his athleticism and height important attributes.
The Giants are also considered likely to lose key position player Kristian Jaksch, who has attracted the interest of Victorian clubs.
And the No.2 draft pick in 2012, midfielder Jono O'Rourke, is likely to make a decision in the next few days about his future.
