Patrick Dangerield has won Adelaide's club champion award just days after announcing he wants to leave the AFL club.
Dangerfield, who on Wednesday announced he was seeking a trade, has confirmed he wants to play for Geelong from next season.
The brilliant midfielder claimed the the Crows' club champion award on Saturday night, polling 315 votes to win ahead of utility Rory Laird (289 votes) and Eddie Betts (278).
Victorian-born Dangerfield said his decision to seek a return to his native Geelong area was "obviously the most difficult decision that I have ever had to make".
"It's one that I suppose brings two really different emotions," he said.
"On one side, that joy of going home and the prospect of starting a family with my beautiful fiance Mardi.
"But then at the same time, great sadness because the Adelaide Football Club has been a huge part of my life over the past eight years.
"The hardest thing is the incredible relationships that you build with so many great people ... and so many people that are willing do absolutely anything in order to help you."
