HAWTHORN forward Tyler Brockman will seek a trade back to Western Australia after three years with the Hawks.

It is believed Brockman, who has come to the end of his contract with the club and had been weighing a move to WA for family reasons, has requested a trade to his home state.

The Hawks have done as much as possible to keep Brockman and help him settle into Melbourne life, with the talented goalkicker playing 15 games and booting 13 goals this season, but the 20-year-old has decided to head home with his twin children and partner. 

He has not nominated a preferred club although West Coast has been viewed as the frontrunner for him, however, Fremantle will also be interested in Brockman. There has been an expectation for some time that a trade request was looking likely from Brockman.
