Geelong’s Steve Johnson joins GWS

Former Geelong star Steve Johnson will continue his AFL career at Greater Western Sydney.

The three-time premiership player signed a one-year deal with the Giants on Monday.

Geelong received a future fifth-round draft selection in exchange, having decided not to offer the 253-game star a new contract.

Meanwhile, 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.

The Suns then acquired North Melbourne ruckman Daniel Currie, offloading selection No.53 to the Kangaroos.

The other deal completed on Monday morning involved Carlton utility Tom Bell, who shifted to Brisbane after 51 games for the Blues.

Bell and Carlton’s third-round pick at No.41 went to Brisbane in return for the Lions’ second-round selection at No.21 and their round-four choice at No.60.

The Lions are understandably keen to sign AFL-ready talent after last week’s departure of ruckman Matthew Leuenberger and on-baller Jack Redden.

The league’s trade period ends on Thursday.
