SUNS TV: Scott Clayton talks post trade meetings Scott Clayton speaks on the first day of the 2017 NAB AFL trade period
The story is that we're looking for net out and net in, and that will be a mix of picks, perhaps future picks, and players.

Day one of the NAB AFL Trade Period is underway and SUNS List Manager Scott Clayton said there is plenty of work still to be done before the club are satisfied with a number of offerings.

While conversations had commenced with Geelong regarding Gary Ablett, Clayton said nothing was finalised and further meetings were to take place later in the week.

"There's some work to do, there's no doubt about that, we're not at the finishing line yet,” he told the media at Etihad Stadium on Monday. 

"To think that anything will be done in the first couple of hours of day one is unrealistic."

Clayton was not at liberty to disclose any names discussed with Geelong, but reinforced that the SUNS were looking at players, draft picks and future picks in order to facilitate the trade request. 

"I'm big on the fact that in this trade period, it's not always a straight line from A to B, often you need to come outside and come back in," he said. 

"The story is that we're looking for net out and net in, and that will be a mix of picks, perhaps future picks, and players."

Clayton also indicated the SUNS not yet had any further discussion with Cat Steven Motlop.
