Jake Stringer has left the Western Bulldogs on the final day of the AFL trade period, with the forward being traded to Essendon.

The want-away forward was one of the big stories of the trading period, with the relationship between him and the Bulldogs breaking down.

Essendon sent picks 25 and 30 to the Bulldogs to secure Stringer's services.

Stringer played 89 games for the Western Bulldogs, kicking 160 goals. Earlier in the trade period the Bombers had traded in Devon Smith from GWS and Adam Saad from Gold Coast.

Following the deal, the Bulldogs also engaged in an exchange of picks with Carlton, swapping picks 28 and 30 and a future second-round selection, for picks 16 and 40.

The day had kicked off with Adelaide and Carlton finally reaching agreement to send Blues midfielder Bryce Gibbs to West Lakes.

West Coast and Gold Coast exchanged picks, with the Eagles giving up their first-round pick in 2018 and pick 50 for this year, and the Suns releasing picks 21, 26 and 37.

The Dockers added GWS defender Nathan Wilson, who was traded to Fremantle with pick 71 in exchange for pick 57 and the team's second-round selection for 2018.

The Sydney Swans and Collingwood agreed to send Sam Murray, pick 70 and a third-round selection in 2018 to the Pies in exchange for a second-round pick for next year.

More to come.
