FORMER top-10 picks Paddy Dow and Nick Coffield have landed at new clubs in a four-club trade that was agreed to on Tuesday and confirmed by the AFL on Wednesday afternoon.

Dow has got his wish to move from Carlton to St Kilda while Coffield is on his way out of the Saints to join the Western Bulldogs.

A swap of picks involving Essendon has enabled the deal to get done, with the Bombers getting an improved draft hand as a result.

In all, the trade involves two players, four picks in this year's draft and five future picks.

The details of the deal are:

Carlton receives
Future third-round pick (tied to Essendon), future fourth-round pick (tied to Western Bulldogs), future fourth-round pick (tied to Fremantle)

Pick 52, future third-round pick

St Kilda receives
Paddy Dow, Pick 40, future third-round pick (tied to Carlton)
St Kilda gives up
Nick Coffield, Pick 35, Pick 56, future fourth-round pick (tied to Fremantle)

Western Bulldogs receive
Nick Coffield, Pick 52, Pick 56
Western Bulldogs give up
Pick 40, future-fourth round pick

In addition to losing Dow, the Blues have swapped future third-round picks with Essendon and future fourth-round picks with the Bulldogs while they have also received a future fourth-round pick from St Kilda, which is tied to Fremantle.

The Bombers have received pick 35 from St Kilda and a future fourth-round pick from the Blues, while they have given up pick 52 to the Dogs and their future third-round pick to Carlton.

In exchange for receiving Dow as well as pick 40 from the Bulldogs and Carlton's future third, the Saints have given up Coffield, picks 35 and 56 as well as a future fourth-round pick tied to Fremantle that they received as part of the Liam Henry trade.

The Bulldogs have given up Pick 40 and a future fourth-round pick and received Coffield, pick 52 from the Bombers and pick 56 from the Saints.

Coffield hasn't played at senior level since 2021 due to a series of long-term injuries and will get a fresh start at Whitten Oval.

"Nick's past few years have been really injury interrupted, which can be difficult to deal with,” St Kilda list manager Stephen Silvagni said.

"We feel like we've reached a mutually beneficial deal with all parties and are pleased to have strengthened our hand heading into the draft.

"We wish Nick all the best for this next chapter of his career."

Silvagni also labelled Dow "a selfless athlete who isn't afraid to put his body on the line for his teammates".

"We could not fault Paddy's professionalism throughout this year, his ability to stay ready for his opportunity at senior level was first class," Blues list boss Nick Austin said of Dow.

"We had really open dialogue with Paddy and his management right throughout the year, and while we would have liked to retain him, he wants to play senior football every week which we respect."
