RICHMOND is completing the paperwork on a trade deal for North Melbourne high-flyer Aaron Edwards.

The Roos forward did a fitness test at Tigerland yesterday and the Richmond website has been updated late today to say the Tigers are "close to finalising a trade deal to secure Edwards' services".

Details of the trade are yet to emerge but Richmond has picks 43 and 74 which could be part of a deal.

Edwards has played 82 career matches, booting 124 goals. But he could manage just nine appearances this season, and none after Round 9 as he fell behind tall forwards Lachie Hansen, Drew Petrie and Robbie Tarrant in the Roos' pecking order.

The Tigers see Edwards as a possible marking target to complement Jack Riewoldt and Ty Vickery.

The role was filled by former Demon Brad Miller in the past two seasons before his retirement.

Department of Trades

Edwards, 28, made his debut in 2005 for West Coast against the Tigers at the MCG and made an instant impression, kicking two goals in a dominant first quarter.

He has also registered several candidates for Mark of the Year during his time in Perth and Arden St.

The Tigers have recruited free agents Troy Chaplin and Chris Knights and sent ruckman Angus Graham to Adelaide in a busy trade period.
