HAMISH Hartlett wants no part of a trade to a rival club – regardless of the money on offer – and wants to re-sign with Port Adelaide.

Richmond and North Melbourne were reportedly willing to offer the midfield star in excess of $700,000 a season to move interstate.

The 25-year-old is contracted until the end of next season but told the club's website on Friday afternoon he wants to ink a new deal.

The latest trade whispers

"There's always a bit of work that goes into a contract negotiation, but I’m very happy at Port Adelaide and want to stay here," Hartlett said.

"The only guernsey I want to wear in the AFL is a Port one."

Later on Triple M Adelaide, he said: "If I was a Port supporter I wouldn't be too stressed out about [trade talk] I think I'm not too far away from signing on … while the offers from those Melbourne, Victorian clubs were pretty flattering I'd find it pretty difficult to leave South Australia.

"Hopefully something can get done over the next week or so."

Hartlett has enjoyed his best season to date in 2015, although the fortunes of his side were less impressive.

He averaged a career-best 22 possessions and six tackles a game.
