RICHMOND premiership player Ivan Soldo is set to lead Port Adelaide's ruck department next season after being traded to the Power on Wednesday.

The Tigers have received picks 41 and 49, a future second-round pick tied to Fremantle as well as Port's future fourth-round pick in exchange for Soldo, with the Power also getting Richmond's pick 50 in return.

Port picked up Fremantle's future second in a deal with the Dockers on the opening day of the trade period.

The Power later secured a deal to bring in another ruckman, Jordon Sweet from the Western Bulldogs.

Soldo has played 57 games for the Tigers since arriving at Punt Rd in 2014, including the club's 2019 Grand Final win, but he has never managed more than 14 in a single season given he has sat behind Tigers co-captain Toby Nankervis in the pecking order.

He played eight games in 2023 before expressing an interest in a trade.

The 27-year-old had been linked with a move to Greater Western Sydney last year, but a move never eventuated.

"Ivan comes to our club with premiership experience and looking for an opportunity to be the number one ruck, working with our elite midfield group," Port list manage Jamie Cripps said.

"Ivan is a competitive and aggressive ruck and a person of great character. He will add significant value to our playing group."
