Port Adelaide are spruiking Jeremy Finlayson's versatility after the GWS tall forward joined them in an AFL trade.

The Power gave up a future third-round draft pick for the 25-year-old, who was recruited through the Giants' academy and has played 66 senior games since his 2017 debut.

Finlayson was contracted to GWS until the end of 2023, but requested a move to South Australia for family reasons.

It is the first deal for the Power and Giants in this trade period.

The Power signed him on a three-year deal and rate the 196cm tall utility as a solid second-ruck option as well as a key forward.

"Jeremy has impressed us during his time at the Giants as a dangerous tall forward due to his athleticism and ability to impact the scoreboard," Power list manager Jason Cripps said.

"He was very influential as a forward for GWS in their (2019) grand final year and we believe he offers us great flexibility as a tall forward, second ruck option.

"Jeremy turns 26 in February which adds balance to our list profile."

Finlayson has kicked 90 AFL goals.
