Richmond General Manager of Football, Neil Balme, has provided an update on the futures of Sam Lloyd, Jacob Townsend and Brandon Ellis.
Lloyd and Townsend have been linked with moves to the Western Bulldogs and St Kilda respectively, while Ellis has been rumoured to have toured North Melbourne’s facilities.
Speaking on AFL NAB Trade Radio, Balme is wary of not letting go of too many players after the departures of Anthony Miles and Corey Ellis to Gold Coast.

“I think Lloyd’s been talking to the Western Bulldogs.”
“We would support that if that is what he really wanted to do. He played well enough to play a lot more games as well, so we’ll see what happens there.”
“I’m not sure what the interest is.”
“We wouldn’t be unhappy to keep him, but we’ll see what happens there.”
“Brandon Ellis is certainly contracted and very much required.”
“But nothing is certain these days of course, but no-one’s actually banged the door down for him at this stage.
“We’d be very keen to keep him, we don’t really want to lose any more players I wouldn’t think.”
