Jared Polec has informed North Melbourne he wants to join the club.
Reports have stated the Roos have offered him up to $750,000 a season to move to Arden Street.
“Jared has indicated his intent to cross to us during the trade period, provided a deal can be reached with Port Adelaide,” North GM of football Cameron Joyce told North Media.
“If everything pans out, as we expect, we’d be delighted to have Jared as he will add some elite qualities to our team.
“We’ll sit down with Port Adelaide in the coming weeks and hopefully agree to a mutually beneficial trade.
“It’s no secret that we’ve been aggressively pursuing midfielders in particular.
“We know Jared will complement our current players and will add some real depth to our group.”
