Scott Lockhart reporting for AFANA from Melbourne.

Alan Didak looks set to remain with Collingwood despite being essentially sacked for misconduct just two months ago.

One could be forgiven for being certain that Didak had worn the black and white for the final time after he was suspended by the club for a drink driving accident and his subsequent lies to the football club in August.

Yet just as trade week has arrived it appears that any negotiations of Didak's future with another club have been taken off the table and the former best and fairest winner looks set to remain a magpie to see out the remaining year of his contract.

Port Adelaide looked the most obvious choice for a new home for the native South Australian, but the club now says that Collingwood wont be making any moves at trade week in regards to Didak.

"He's contracted and all the way through his management and Collingwood have been adamant he's staying there and that's the way it's going to be," Port Adelaide football manager Peter Rhode said.

Didak was leading Collingwood's 2008 Best and fairest until his suspension.
