Geelong sign Suns ruckman Zac Smith

AFL club Geelong have continued their recruiting spree, signing up Gold Coast ruckman Zac Smith.

The Cats completed the paperwork on Monday, shipping off a pair of third round draft picks in exchange for Smith.

Adelaide superstar Patrick Dangerfield, West Coast’s Scott Selwood and Carlton forward Lachie Henderson joined the Cats last week.

Earlier, Fairfax Media reported that Geelong star Steve Johnson had signed a one-year deal with Greater Western Sydney.

Johnson will apparently also become an assistant coach at GWS after next season.

Geelong did not offer the 253-game star a new contract.

Also in trade news, Carlton utility Tom Bell will go to Brisbane in return for AFL draft picks.

The Blues announced a trade where Bell and their third-round pick at No.41 will go to Brisbane in return for the Lions’s second-round selection at No.21 and their round-four choice at 60.

Bell was Carlton’s best first-year player in 2012 and played 51 games for the Blues.

The league’s trade period ends on Thursday.
