CARLTON has secured small forward Lachie Fogarty from Geelong.

The Blues gave the Cats picks No.30 and No.51 for pick No.38 and the 21-year-old, who was taken with pick No.22 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft.

Fogarty was contracted to the Cats for 2021, but has moved to the Blues in the hope of playing more regularly.

The Western Jets product played a combination of midfield and forward time in his six games this season but was squeezed out of the side ahead of finals.

Fogarty managed 15 games in his debut season of 2018 but has since battled a series of knee, ankle and groin issues that has cost him continuity in back-to-back pre-seasons.
