AFL trade period 2017: Andrew Gaff’s manager pours more water on trade speculation

Mark Dufield and Glen Quartermain address the rumour that Gaff could be traded.

Andrew Gaff’s manager Paul Connors has reinforced West Coast’s claim that the 2015 best and fairest will not entertain a trade this offseason.

Gaff, who is contracted next year, had been rumoured to be the subject of big-money offers from his home state of Victoria, with St Kilda in particular linked to the outside runner.

The Eagles on Thursday insisted there was no merit to the speculation, with football manager Craig Vozzo declaring the club had no interest in moving on one of their best ball-winners.

That position was backed up by Connors today, who said he was confused when rival clubs started making calls.

“Craig Vozzo and I were talking about it, scratching our heads and wondering why,” he told Trade Radio.

“(Gaff) heads to Europe on Saturday morning for a few weeks and I think, I don’t think, I know that he’ll be at West Coast next year.”

The situation was discussed on the Duff and Quarters podcast this week, with Glen Quartermain suggesting the fact Gaff will be a free agent next year led to all of the speculation.

“The question was asked, why shouldn’t he be on the table now so that the Eagles can get a bit more for him?” he said.

“It grew from there.

“They can’t afford to lose him. He’s in their two best midfielders, they just lost two midfielders, it’s a no-brainer for me, he can’t go.”
