GOLD Coast rebounder Adam Saad wants to join the growing player migration to Tullamarine, requesting a trade to Essendon on Thursday.
Saad is understood to have informed the Suns that the Bombers are his preferred new home, but the 23-year-old has not completely closed the door on a move to another Victorian club.
Saad joins Devon Smith in seeking a move to Essendon, the uncontracted Giant forward having nominated the Dons as his preferred new club earlier on Thursday.
Western Bulldogs forward Jake Stringer is also expected to ask for a trade to the Bombers soon.
Saad is contracted with the Suns for 2018 but wants to move home to Victoria for family reasons.
