Tyson “would be open” to trade

Melbourne midfielder Dom Tyson would be open to a trade should the right opportunity come up according to his manager Nick Gieschen.

Tyson played 17 games for the Dees this year, but has slowly been pushed down the midfield depth chart.

“Dom’s predominantly played best as an inside midfielder and I guess with the emergence of a few other stars, he’s been pushed out to the wing,” Gieschen told NAB AFL Trade Radio.

“With Dom you know what you’re going to get – 25 possessions every week, good clearance numbers, great kid – he would be open to something if the right opportunity came up.

“Dom’s contracted for next year, he loves it at Melbourne. It would have to be the right opportunity for him, but we’ll see how the next couple of weeks go.

“I’m reluctant to name clubs, but there has been a little bit of interest for the clubs that need that type of player.”

Essendon could be in the market for an inside midfielder, while Carlton is also looking to build their midfield depth.

Tyson was traded to Melbourne by GWS in 2013, giving up picks two, 20 and 73 for Tyson, pick nine and pick 53.

The Giants would use pick two to grab star Josh Kelly, while the Dees took Christian Salem at nine.
