FRINGE Richmond players Connor Menadue and Callum Moore are set to sign one-year deals to remain at Punt Road in 2019.
The pair of 22-year-olds are poised to join Shai Bolton as re-signed Tigers following the West Australian's committal for one year this week.
It's understood their extensions aren't yet finalised but the Tigers are keen to secure the pair, and they are happy to stay.
Menadue played five AFL games this year and Moore six, with both impressing in the club's losing VFL semi-final last month.
The move to keep the duo comes as intrigue continues to surround the Tigers' list management in the lead-up to the NAB AFL Trade Period, with the expected arrival of Tom Lynch to be finalised as early as Friday when the free agency period opens.
WHEN DOES TRADE PERIOD START? All the key dates
Reece Conca has been offered four years from Fremantle, and while the Tigers would like their former first-round draft selection to stay, they are understanding of the magnitude of the contract from the Dockers.
The West Australian is an unrestricted free agent and could move clubs, like Lynch, as early as Friday.
Sam Lloyd is bound for Whitten Oval while Corey Ellis and Anthony Miles have been linked heavily to Gold Coast.
Rookie Tyson Stengle looks set to depart for Adelaide, despite recently moving in with Richmond teammate Shane Edwards, while the out-of-contract Jacob Townsend wants to stay but is considering his options after being dropped three times this season.
West Australian and premiership Tiger Nathan Broad quietly signed a new contract earlier this year and will remain at the club in 2019, while Liam Baker will be retained as a rookie for another year.
