Midfielder Jackson Hately has informed the club of his desire to be traded to the Adelaide Crows.

General Manager Football Jason McCartney said: “Jackson has informed the club of his hope to return to South Australia so we will now investigate trade options with a view to getting the best possible outcome for the GIANTS."

Hately played 13 games across two seasons since joining the GIANTS as pick 14 in the 2018 NAB AFL Draft.

The 19-year old played predominately as a midfielder and kicked two goals in his 13 games.
