Western Bulldogs defender Hayden Crozier is confident that recent signing Adam Treloar will add plenty to the squad under head coach Luke Beveridge.

Twenty-seven-year-old midfielder Treloar was allowed to complete a trade move from Collingwood to the Bulldogs, having spent just over five years with the Magpies and kicked 49 goals in 94 appearances.

He's got a great footy brain, is a great fella and will add a lot to this group going forward.

He had previously started his AFL career with the Greater Western Sydney Giants and his raft of experience makes him a quality recruit in the mind of Crozier.

Crozier told his club's official website: "He's vocal, he's been really good. Adam's someone that the club looked at last year and thought that he'd fit the bill really well.

"He's the ultimate professional. I've caught up with him a couple of times, he's got a great footy brain, is a great fella and will add a lot to this group going forward."

Meanwhile, Josh Dunkley is staying put with the Bulldogs, after his wish to be traded away was rejected.

The 23-year-old midfielder had been keen on linking up with the Essendon Bombers, but they and the Bulldogs were unable to agree a deal to suit all parties concerned.

Dunkley has spent the whole of his AFL career to date with the Dogs, booting 42 goals in 78 appearances.

Last season the Bullies finished in seventh place in the regular season standings, before losing out to St Kilda in the opening round of the Finals series.

This term they are available at 8/11 to secure a top-eight finish, while thy can be backed at 13/5 to finish inside the top four.
