Hawks get Impey from Port

JARMAN Impey has signed a three-year deal with Hawthorn after the Hawks agreed to a trade with Port Adelaide.

As well as Impey, Hawthorn will also get pick 67, while the Power receives picks 33, 61 and a future fourth round selection.

“We are really pleased a deal could be reached with Port Adelaide and look forward to welcoming Jarman to the Hawks,” list manager Graham Wright said.

“His outstanding speed and endurance will be a really valuable asset and his ability to play at both ends of the ground is a great advantage.

“Jarman is a competitive character, who goes hard at the footy, which makes him an exciting acquisition and a terrific addition to our list.

“At only 22 years of age, Jarman has plenty of football ahead of him and we can’t wait to see what he can produce in the brown and gold.”

Drafted with pick 21 in the 2013 National Draft, Impey played 75 games at Port Adelaide.

“Jarman has been a strong contributor to the team and played some exciting football in a variety of roles,” Power list manager Patrick Cripps said.

“Although it’s disappointing to see him go we understand the reasoning behind his decision and wish him the best for the future.”
