Trade talk: October 11

Essendon isn't the only club that has shown interest in Western Bulldogs player Jake Stringer.

Geelong has also explored recruiting the premiership player.

But list manager Stephen Wells says it's unlikely the Cats will be able to secure him:

"We investigated Jake and thought we'd be a good club for him," he told NAB AFL Trade Radio.

"The problem we were always going to have was trying to do that deal with the Bulldogs.

"We have pick 20 in the draft and were really keen to keep that pick, we're not saying it's totally off the table but it would have to be a really good deal for us to part with that.

"Jake might have been a good player to part with pick 20, but the Bulldogs made it clear that wasn't going to get the deal done."
