Hogan spent last week considering his future before agreeing to join the Giants, who had been his most aggressive suitor.?
GWS and Fremantle agreed a trade would be completed before thrashing out the exact terms and signing off on the move on the opening day of Trade Period.?
Fremantle football manager Peter Bell said the deal would free up space in the Dockers' total player payments.
"Clearly the trade for Jesse hasn’t ended the way that we would like but in the best interests of both parties we’ve agreed to this trade and we wish Jesse all the very best with the Giants," Bell said.?
It is not yet clear what Hogan’s new contract agreement will be, given he had one year to run on a deal with Fremantle.?
The 25-year-old, who kicked 18 goals in 19 games for the Dockers, this week apologised to fans for his two-year stint not panning out as he had hoped.??
If Hogan can rediscover his best form, he shapes as an immediate replacement for departing free agent Jeremy Cameron, who is seeking a move to Geelong.?
Hogan booted a career-best 47 goals in 2018 as a Demon and topped 40 goals in three of his first four seasons before crossing to the Dockers.

"He’s excited to continue his career with us and his commitment is a great endorsement for our club."?
