WITH just three days remaining in the Telstra AFL Trade Period there's still plenty of wheeling and dealing to come.

AFL.com.au's Trade Winds will provide a round-up of the latest developments each morning until the end of the Trade Period on Wednesday, October 16.
Pies put duo on trade table
With a contract headache looming next year, The Age is reporting James Aish has been "encouraged" to look elsewhere for 2020, with midfielder Rupert Wills also considering his future at the club.
The pair both have a year left to run on their contract, but the Pies are facing a scary salary cap squeeze, with stars including Brodie Grundy, Darcy Moore and Jordan De Goey out of contract at the end of next season.
If defender Aish moves, he will be at his third club in six years, having played 32 games for Brisbane (2014-15) and 50 at Collingwood.
Wills, 26, was a mature-age draftee signed from the club's VFL side.

He has struggled to establish himself in the senior side, but managed a run of six consecutive games to finish the year, including the qualifying and preliminary finals.
Forget Moorabbin, there's no place like Geelong?
Could Geelong replace one talented West Australian midfielder with another?
The Cats have already lost Tim Kelly to West Coast this Telstra AFL Trade Period, but according to News Corp, could be an outside chance to land wantaway Docker Bradley Hill.

Hill has stated his desire to move to Victoria, and St Kilda specifically, in part due to his girlfriend hailing from Melbourne.
With St Kilda and Fremantle struggling to agree on an appropriate deal, the Saints traded pick No.6 (long earmarked as part of the Hill deal) and 59 to Greater Western Sydney for picks 12 and 18.
Geelong is looming as a side who could swoop in if St Kilda's deal fails to materialise, with the Dockers keen on West Australian Cat Sam Menegola, who they delisted at the end of 2014.

Cat Steven stalemate
A report from News Corp suggests the potential deal to get multiple club champion Jack Steven from St Kilda to Geelong may fall over, with the clubs struggling to come to terms.
Pick 37, which the Cats received from Essendon as part of a three-way trade that saw Tim Kelly get to West Coast, has long been touted as the solution to Steven deal, but it hasn't proven to be the magic solution.
The report says Geelong want another selection along with Steven in return for pick 37, while the Saints – who have a large group of players wanting to join the club – want a higher selection than 37.
Steven, 27, hails from Lorne down the Surf Coast, and would like to be closer to home for the tail end of his career, but the Cats are willing to back in their younger midfielders to cover for the loss of Tim Kelly.
He took an extended break from football this year for his mental health but returned for the Saints' final three games.
