Jackson Trengove, Matt Suckling and Callum Porter have all been delisted by the Western Bulldogs as they prepare for 2021.

Now the Trade Period is done and dusted all clubs are making tough decisions and it is no different at Whitten Oval with the trio being shown the door.

Suckling is the longest serving out of the trio having spent the last five seasons with the with the Bulldogs, making over 76 appearances and kicking 34 goals.

The 32-year-old arrived from Hawthorn, where he played 102 matches and won two Premierships with Alastair Clarkson's men.

Trengrove played 33 games for the Dogs over a three-year stint, but only one in 2020, so his exit comes as no great surprise.

Previously he had eight seasons with Port Adelaide, playing 153 games, before joining the Bulldogs in 2017.

21-year-old Porter arrived as pick No.74 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft and made just one appearance for the club in round eight of the 2020 campaign.

Bulldogs' general manager of List and Recruiting, Sam Power has thanked all three players for their contribution to the club and wished them well for the future.

"These are difficult decisions to make, because we're dealing with quality individuals who cannot be questioned for their hard work and dedication," Power said.

"They represented the club with pride and gave their all, and we are grateful for their efforts.

"We wish them every success for whatever their futures hold, and they know they are always welcome back at the club."

The Bulldogs are priced at 12/1 to win the AFL grand final.
