Blake Acres and Rory Lobb have requested trades in their exit meetings on Wednesday, reports Seven’s Mitch Cleary.
However the Dockers are “not entertaining” Lobb’s request “as it stands” according to Seven Perth’s Ryan Daniels.
It was reported earlier this week Fremantle is willing to hold Lobb to his contract if swingman Griffin Logue leaves.

The Fremantle pair are seeking new starts in Victoria, with Acres asking to join Carlton and Lobb wanting a move to the Western Bulldogs.
Both players need to be traded to move. Acres is expected to sign a three-year deal to play under Michael Voss while Lobb is believed to be signing a three-year, $1.5 million deal once he gets to Luke Beveridge’s side.
Lobb and Acres would both be joining their third AFL clubs. Lobb played 74 of his 140 AFL games at GWS, while Acres featured 75 times for St Kilda before his 45 Dockers appearances.
Vision emerged on Wednesday of Acres emptying his locker at Dockers headquarters today.
Acres is one of at least six Dockers potentially on the move this trade period, along with Lobb, Logue, ruckman Lloyd Meek, wingman Darcy Tucker and small forward Liam Henry.
Lobb was one player in and out of the club quickly on Wednesday, after news emerged he’d purchased a $1.85 million home in South Yarra recently with his Melbourne-based partner.
Tucker was another Docker to depart the club on Wednesday with his locker possessions, limping out on crutches after hurting his knee in the WAFL this month.
Tucker was restricted to just 14 games this season as injury and form combined to keep him in the WAFL affiliate Peel Thunder.
The 25-year-old Victorian could be on the move back home, after just 108 games in seven seasons at Fremantle.
He’s been linked to North Melbourne in recent trade reports.
