Former Laois footballer Zach Tuohy is expected to complete a move from Carlton to AFL rivals Geelong this week.

Tuohy, who won a Leinster minor title with Laois in 2007, joined the Melbourne-based club on an international rookie deal six years ago. He made his full debut a year later.

The 26-year-old is expected to pen a four-year deal with Geelong this week in a draft-pick trade deal.

Tuohy became only the fifth Irishman to reach 100 AFL appearance earlier this year, and his impending move will come in the wake of Pearce Hanley’s switch from Brisbane Lions to Gold Coast Suns.

The Mayo man, who played 129 times for the Lions, tweeted: “Very big thank you to everyone and anyone who has helped me along this amazing journey at the Lions but that chapter has come to an end.

“Now I’m excited to get started at the Suns and earn the respect of my new team mates. Can't wait to grab this opportunity.”
