GOLD Coast has confirmed former top-10 draft pick Callum Ah Chee is the latest player to want out from the club.

The news comes just 24 hours after Jack Martin requested a trade in his exit interview earlier this week.

The Suns released a statement on Wednesday night saying Ah Chee, 21, wanted to "explore his options" in the upcoming NAB AFL Trade Period.

"During our end of season exit interview … Callum indicated that he would like to explore the opportunity to continue his career elsewhere in 2020," general manager of football operations Jon Haines said.

Since being taken with the eighth pick in the 2015 draft, West Australian Ah Chee has played 45 games in four seasons.

He played just one game this year, in round 13 against St Kilda, after being dogged by injuries.

The requests from Martin and Ah Chee follow the retirement of Michael Rischitelli and the delistings of Jack Leslie, Brad Scheer and Connor Nutting.
