Richmond Premiership player Jack Graham has met with Port Adelaide manager Ken Hinkley and football boss Chris Davies amid speculation about a possible move.
After originally telling the media he had no plans to meet with power – and that he was only in Adelaide to visit family – the in-demand Tiger was caught on camera at the Alberton Oval with the club’s heavyweights .

It has been widely reported that Graham, 24, is open to a trade despite having a contract for next season.
With Greater Western Sydney’s top midfielders Tim Taranto and Jacob Hopper joining Richmond next year, Graham could be pushed out of the Tigers’ top 22.
Davies said Tuesday Graham was one of the South Australian-born players of interest to his club.
“We’re interested in South Australian players who might be interested in coming home, definitely,” Davies told Trade Radio.
“Jack is obviously a good player. I’m not sure where his situation with Richmond stands.
“But any player who … comes from South Australia and wants to come back, we have to take an interest in him.”
Port Adelaide had their eye on western bulldog Josh Dunkley but the wanton midfielder named Brisbane as his preferred destination.
Dunkley’s partner Tippah Dwan was the main attraction for Power’s pitch to Dunkley as Dwan plays for the Adelaide Thunderbirds in the Super Netball League and lives in South Australia.
Graham played in Richmond’s Premierships in 2017 and 2020 and missed the flag of 2019 after struggling with shoulder and hamstring injuries throughout the year.
7NEWS sports reporter Mitch Cleary believes Graham, at 24, will be a “great addition to the port midfield”.
With Travis Boak turning 35 next year, the club are looking for an experienced midfielder to back up young guns Connor Rozee and Zak Butters.
