Clayton Oliver Attracts Interest from Multiple AFL Clubs

Ben H / 4 October 2023

Reports claim that several AFL clubs are looking to acquire the services of Melbourne midfielder Clayton Oliver. Riley Beveridge and Cal Twomey, who were first to break the news, did say, though, that the player didn’t request a transferand Melbourne wasn’t offering its superstar to other clubs.

The 26-year-old, whose contract with Melbourne runs until 2030, signed a massive contract extension last season. However, Oliver didn’t have the best of seasons and suffered several injury setbacks, playing only 13 matches.

Rivals to Consider Several Factors before Making their Move

Beveridge, who noted that Oliver had “a very challenging year,” reported that clubs would monitor the player’s situation over the coming weeks and decide whether to go for him during the trade period this year or make their move later.

Twomey said that rival clubs were considering several factors. They first wanted to determine how much a trade attempt for the player would cost them, but also didn’t know if Oliver was “open to any move,” as he hasn’t shown any signals that he wants to leave the club. Melbourne is reportedly feeling the same way and hasn’t indicated a willingness to part with Oliver.

 So, it was now up to rivals to decide if the move for the player would be “something they want to proceed with.” Oliver is a three-time All-Australian with four awards for best and fairest and getting him would be a significant coup for any AFL team.
