MELBOURNE is considering trading former captain Jack Trengove and pick 23 to Richmond for pick 12.
 
Trengove has battled foot problems in the past two seasons and played just two games in 2014.
 
The 23-year-old had an operation on the navicular bone in his foot and spent time away from the club this season to recover.
 
Trengove was the second pick overall in the 2009 AFL National Draft and had a brilliant start to his career however his form tailed off after he was named captain in 2012.
 
He was the youngest captain in the game's history but only lasted two seasons in the job before relinquishing the spot to concentrate on enjoying his football.
 
The Demons are aware he is a popular and loyal figure and remained coy about whether the deal would eventuate.
 
"We said after our last game to our playing list that we would look at all avenues to improve our list. Richmond came to us with a potential deal, Jack is aware of this and all parties will now take some time to consider our options," a Melbourne spokeperson said.
 
However with the Tigers looking to bolster their midfield and being a club on the rise, Trengove might be recharged by a new environment.
