On Monday, unrestricted free agent Adam Tomlinson joined Melbourne on a five-year deal worth $500,000. This morning, Tomlinson gave his first press conference as a Demons player.

Tomlinson said he was looking forward to working hard and getting stuck into a big pre-season. 

He said he had spoken to coach Simon Goodwin about playing a consistent role next season and gettig continuity in his football.

He thanked GWS, but said he was excited to be with the Dees.

Then this is the video for you.

Another report from Jake Niall from Monday: Carlton have been asked to provide a first-round draft pick for Jack Martin by the Gold Coast Suns, as the Blues seek to trade in both Martin and Sydney’s Tom Papley.

The Blues, to date, have offered the Suns their future second-round choice for Martin, who is out of contract and asking to be traded to Carlton, who also have to find a way to satisfy the Swans in a trade for Papley, the small forward who is contracted for another four seasons.

Read the full report here.

Noble also said the Lions hadn’t had any direct contact with Sydney about Lewis Taylor. Jake Niall reported on Monday that Sydney are considering recruiting Taylor, a move the Lions were aware of and are comfortable with.

Lions head of football David Noble has told Trade Radio that the Lions felt they were in the running for Jamie Elliott right until the end.

Michael Gleeson reported late last night that Elliott had decided to stay with the Magpies, spurning offers from Brisbane and the Demons. Melbourne had been told on Saturday, and the Lions were informed on Monday night.

Noble said on Tuesday morning that after missing out on Elliott, the club had to be careful not to fall into “chasing” other players instead.

He said he was hopeful the Lions can get Callum Ah Chee and had already acquired Cam Ellis-Yolman as a free agent, so thought the club was in a good position.

“It’s about what fits the needs, and if there’s no one else then there’s no one else,” Noble said.
