Austin and Port Adelaide’s own future fourth round selection will go to St Kilda in return for the Saints’ future third round selection.

Power List Manager Jason Cripps said Austin was looking for greater opportunities to play AFL football and wished him well for the next stage of his career.

“Logan had a solid 2016 season playing 11 games, but wasn’t able to cement a position in our defence this year,” Cripps said.

"We wish him every success at St Kilda."

Port Adelaide List Manager Jason Cripps said Lobbe’s move will benefit all parties involved.

“It’s been a difficult couple of seasons for Matthew, first with injury and then with All-Australian ruckman Paddy Ryder holding down the first ruck role in our side,” Cripps said.

“Matthew is a great person who deserves to be playing AFL and Carlton are offering that opportunity.”

TOM ROCKLIFF is adamant his best football is still ahead of him, as the Brisbane veteran prepares to make the move Adelaide to join the Power in 2018.

Rockliff nominated Alberton as his destination of choice despite significant interest from within Victoria, and the 27-year-old says he’s excited to be part of a midfield that boasts the All-Australian ruckman Paddy Ryder.

“I’m really looking forward to working with the guys [at Port Adelaide]” Rockliff told FiveAA on Wednesday afternoon.

“Paddy [Ryder] is a fantastic ruckman – to perform the way he did this season after having 12 months off…I’m really excited [to play with him].

This story originally appeared on afl.com.au and is speculative in nature. The views represented are not that of the Port Adelaide Football Club.

Young, 24, was the Power's second-highest goal-kicker in 2016, but managed just 13 games this year and spent much of the second half of the season in the SANFL. 

He's out of contract, but looks poised to accept a new one-year deal with the Power if they can't trade him to a club where he'll get more AFL opportunities.

Motlop nominated the Power as his destination of choice on Friday afternoon, and the move was made official when Geelong decided not to match Port’s offer to lure the illusive forward to Alberton.

“One of the reasons why I’m playing footy is because I want to win a premiership,” Motlop told NAB AFL Trade Radio.

“They [Port] are getting some good players in, like Tom Rockliff, and they’ve got a...
