GOLD Coast has traded its pick No.43 to West Coast in exchange for a round three compensation pick, which is yet to be activated but must be used next year.

The move allows the Eagles to move up the order in round three, while Gold Coast stockpiles a compensation pick, which it can use in the 2014 NAB AFL Draft.

Its position in round three of the 2014 draft will be determined by Collingwood's finishing position next season.

It is possible the Suns would not have used pick No.43, which would have been their fourth selection in this year's Draft.

Gold Coast now holds picks No.5, No.20, No.27 and No.61.

The Eagles, meanwhile, have traded for each of their top three selection's in the Draft, with picks No.11, No.31, No. 43 and No.49 currently at their disposal.

They started the Gillette AFL Trade Period with picks No.6, No.28 and No.44, but have manoeuvred to add Elliot Yeo from the Brisbane Lions and Xavier Ellis as a free agent.

The compensation pick West Coast sent to the Suns on Friday was originally acquired by trading pick No.45 to Collingwood in exchange for the compensation pick the Magpies received for Josh Fraser.

The trade was the first on what is expected to be a frantic final day of trading at Etihad Stadium as clubs seek to finalise all deals before the 2pm AEDT deadline.
