Magpies youngster, Blues trio set for new deals


Collingwood youngster Trent Bianco has triggered a one-year contract extension for 2023, reports AFL Media's Cal Twomey.

The 21-year-old spent several weeks in the VFL before earning a senior recall against Adelaide in Round 18.

Bianco gathered a career-high 20 disposals against the Crows and set up Jamie Elliott’s after-the-siren goal winner against Essendon the following week.

“A new deal for young Magpie Trent Bianco, who has triggered a one-year extension, reported today from Josh Gabelich on,” Twomey told SEN Breakfast.

Bianco has played 19 games for Collingwood since arriving at the club in the 2019 National Draft.

The Magpies are also working on a new deal for young out-of-contract forward Oliver Henry.

“I think Ollie Henry is likely to stay at Collingwood,” Twomey said.

“They’ve been in talks on a deal for a little bit now, but just hasn’t got to that point of agreement.

“Certainly you’d expect Collingwood would want to keep him given he was a first-round pick only two years ago.”

Elsewhere, a trio of Carlton players are also set for new contracts.

“Riley Beveridge reports that Carlton trio Matt Owies, Matt Cottrell and Jordan Boyd are all set for fresh two-year extensions as well,” Twomey said.

“All three of those have been pretty important for the Blues and they’re all keen to stay.”

Blues quintet Lochie O'Brien, Caleb Marchbank, Liam Stocker, Will Setterfield and David Cuningham all remain unsigned beyond 2022.
