Jeremy Cameron will wear the navy and white hoops in 2021 after the Cats and GWS Giants agreed a trade today.
Geelong sent picks 13, 15, 20 and a future fourth round pick to the Giants in return for Cameron and the Giants and Essendon’s second round picks in the 2021 national draft.
“It is rare that a player of Jeremy’s talent becomes available and we are thrilled that he will be playing for us for the rest of his career,” Geelong’s recruiting and list manager Stephen Wells said.
“Jeremy and his management have been nothing but professional throughout this period. Jeremy had a number of options through this period and in deciding that Geelong was the best club for his future and we could facilitate a trade for him is a great outcome for both parties.
“Our players are excited to add Jeremy to our list. We believe we have strengthened our list through the free agent and draft period.
“There were a number of possible deals discussed today and we believe this one was the best for our club to secure Jeremy and strengthen our draft position in 2021.”
Cameron played 171 games and booted 427 goals, both club records for the Giants. A dominant force within the AFL, Cameron is a dual All Australian and also has claimed the Coleman medal in 2019 and the Giants best & fairest in 2013. Cameron has led the Giants goal kicking in all nine seasons with the club. Since debuting in 2012, Cameron has kicked the fifth most goals in the AFL.
