Triple M's Damian Barrett has given an update on the future of Jesse Hogan, saying the trade talk is stronger than it's ever been.
DAMO'S HOGAN UPDATE:
Reports have been rife once again about Hogan moving back to Western Australia, linking him to Fremantle.
The 23-year-old, who has kicked 152 goals from 71 games, is contracted until the end of 2019, but Barrett told Triple M's Rush Hour the talk was bigger than ever.
"It's now into its fourth year, when we get to this time of year, when he's been talked about," he said on the Mid-Week Rub.
"This is the strongest the talk has been that the return and pull of the Perth clubs is of a nature that it (the trade talk) will be thrashed out, I think, in a very significant way."
Brina Taylor said the Demons should be desperate to ensure they keep Hogan.
"I know there's not much you can do when a player has made his mind up that he wants to go,"
"If he hasn't made up his mind, Melbourne should be fighting tooth and nail to keep this guy.
