Carlton’s CEO Steven Trigg confirmed on Wednesday out-of-contract defender Zach Tuohy has been offered a “healthy three-year deal” by the Club. 

Speaking to Kevin Bartlett on SEN’s Hungry for Sport, Trigg praised the Irishman for his tremendous contribution to the Blues over the past six years, and reiterated his desire for the 26-year-old to remain at Ikon Park. 

“We’d like Zach to stay, he’s got a very healthy three-year deal in front of him and like a bunch of players around the competition at the moment he’s just weighing up his options, which is not unreasonable,” Trigg said. 

“We want him to stay at the footy club, he’s been very durable and he’s a very strong senior player.

“I know there are a couple of clubs having conversations with his management, but we’ll see where that one lands – we’d like him to stay.” 

As the trade period draws closer, the CEO also said he was pleased young Giant Caleb Marchbank had nominated Carlton as his club of choice. 

“He’s nominated Carlton and we’re rapt about that,” Trigg said.

“We’ve now got to try and get the deal done, but he will add to us significantly.”

The AFL’s official trade period begins on Monday October 10 at 10am.
