Jordan Clark's desperate attempt to be traded to Fremantle has led to an explosive phone conversation in which the Geelong speedster hung up abruptly when talking to the Cats' list manager.
That's the report of SEN's Sam Edmund as Geelong and Fremantle continue to grapple over the value of Clark, who wants to be traded to the Dockers with a year to run on his contract in hope of receiving more AFL game time.
Clark is still a Geelong player on the final day of the trade period because the Dockers are not happy with the options the Cats have presented: either Clark for pick 19, or Clark for pick 22 and a future third-round pick.
