HAWTHORN running machine Billy Hartung's future remains uncertain, but former Richmond key forward Tyrone Vickery will not be traded.
Meanwhile, dual premiership player Taylor Duryea will stay at the Hawks after the free agent signed a one-year deal.
Hawthorn wants to land Port Adelaide speedster Jarman Impey, who has indicated a desire to move despite being contracted with the Power until the end of 2018.
List manager Graham Wright told NAB AFL Trade Radio that talks with the Power on the first day of the trade period were encouraging.
"We chatted to Port today and I don't think there will be a massive amount of trouble with that one and hopefully we can get it done," Wright said.
"He's still got a year to go on his contract, so Port can retain him or trade him, but I think they were open to him exploring his options.
"He wanted to get back to Victoria, so from that perspective, just have to see how the next couple of days go."
Wright said a draft pick would be exchanged in the deal and that Impey could be used in a variety of roles.
"I think he can play small defender, he played that his first couple years there, but he's also been able to go into the forward half," Wright said.
"He's got outstanding speed, endurance, so he can really cover the ground.
"He's played at either end rather than the midfield, but we will explore whether he can go through there like some of our other forwards have done."
List manager Graham Wright told reporters at Etihad Stadium on Monday morning for the launch of the NAB AFL Trade Period that Hartung could be moved on.
Hartung, who was drafted at No.24 in 2013, is out of contract.
"We're not ruling that out, that he stays with us," Wright said.
Vickery, who joined the club as a free agent from Richmond last year, had a miserable first year at the Hawks, having lined up in just six games.
"He's not on the table," Wright said.
