Myrtleford footballer Jack Crisp is set to continue his AFL career with Collingwood.
Crisp is the key piece in the trade that will allow Magpies superstar Dayne Beams to return to Queensland after he requested a move to the Lions to be closer to his sick father.
While the deal hadn’t been confirmed when the Myrtleford Times went to print, Collingwood president Eddie McGuire confirmed to Melbourne radio station Triple M on Tuesday morning that all aspects of the deal had been agreed upon.
After limited opportunities in his three years at the Lions the willingness of Crisp to return to Victoria was the catalyst for the move.
As of Tuesday morning the proposed trade would see the Magpies receive Crisp and picks five and 25 in the 2014 AFL National Draft in exchange for Beams.
