As part of the trade, the Demons will also receive a fourth-round pick (currently No.62) from the Kangaroos.

It is understood the Roos initially baulked at the inclusion of Tyson in the deal, but when they missed out on West Coast free agent Andrew Gaff, they were more open to taking on the former Demon's significant salary.

Tuesday, 9 October 2018
Gold Coast and North Melbourne have emerged as suitors for Dom Tyson's services.

Tyson is contracted at the Demons for 2019 but has been exploring opportunities at rival clubs in the hope of spending more time in his preferred position as an inside midfielder.

Monday, 9 January 2017
Dom Tyson suffers a partial dislocation of his patella tendon, but is still expected to feature in the Demons' pre-season campaign.

Tyson sustained the knee injury during a challenging training camp before the Christmas break.

"Unfortunately, Dom Tyson suffered a partial dislocation of the patella tendon during the camp and as a result, will miss a portion of pre-season training," football operations Josh Mahoney said.

"Dom is currently in the rehab group but we expect him to return to full training and to be available for selection during the JLT Community Series."

Wednesday, 28 September 2016
Melbourne locks away midfielder Dom Tyson until the end of 2019 after extending his contract beyond the end of 2017.

"Domís stoppage craft and his ability to kick goals makes him an important part of the mix in our midfield," Melbourne football manager Josh Mahoney said.

"He has added different layers to his craft each year and we look forward to that continuing as our young midfield develops as a group."

Friday, 5 September 2014
Nathan Jones has equalled the feat of club great Jim Stynes, winning three consecutive Keith 'Bluey' Truscott Medals as Melbourne's best and fairest player in 2014.

Jones polled 311 votes to edge out first-year Demon and runner-up Dom Tyson (293), while Bernie Vince held down third position (270).

"In the time that I've been here I think we've lacked direction, but I can guarantee I've never been more confident in the direction that we're heading now," Jones said as he accepted his award.

"We've got some terrific stability from the top down and I really believe we have true trust in the coaching staff and belief in the game plan and I have belief, more importantly, in my teammates and the players I stand alongside on the weekends.

"I honestly don't think success is too far away."

Wednesday, 7 May 2014
Dom Tyson says he is happy to be back home in Melbourne after being traded by the Giants to the Demons for the No.2 pick which landed Josh Kelly.

"You can only control how you're going. If Josh (Kelly) is playing good footy then that's great, but [the comparison] doesn't really bother me," Tyson said when asked about comparisons between himself and Kelly.

"Eventually I was going to try to get home (to Melbourne) in my career. It obviously happened a little bit earlier than I thought it would have.

"But 'Roosy' and the Melbourne staff were keen to have a meeting, and I was open-minded after a difficult year with injuries.

"For me, coming home I'm closer to my brothers and family and friends."

Being a better inside player is a goal that Stephen Coniglio has set for himself and the rest of the GWS midfield in 2014 following the departures of Taylor Adams and Dom Tyson.

"You've got to win the hard ball first before you can do anything and this year that'll be one of my goals, to make sure I get better at that," Coniglio said.

"Losing Dom Tyson, who was an inside specialist, and Taylor Adams, who loves the grunt and loves being inside, we need to take it to the next level.

"Another year in the gym, we'll be physically stronger and won't be pushed over as easily as some of our midfielders probably have been in our first two years."

Wednesday, 12 February 2014
Dom Tyson hopes the hiccups of the past two seasons are behind him as he prepares to play for the Demons for the first time in the NAB Challenge Cup.

"I haven't missed a session since the Christmas break. It will be important for me to get a bit of footy in the NAB Challenge and be confident."

Wednesday, 23 October 2013
Demon recruit Dom Tyson says he is optimistic when it comes to his new club's future on the field.

"It's exciting that we've got a young group now that can hopefully take the Dees up the ladder," Tyson said.

"I know a few young boys here, so it's exciting to think we could come through and play some good footy together and hopefully be part of something pretty special."

Tuesday, 22 October 2013
Dom Tyson says he will enjoy playing in his home city after being trade from the Giants to Melbourne.

"I was contracted, so I hadn't really had too much of a thought about it," he said.

"But when my management said there could be a pretty serious chance to get back, that's when I thought it would be great to return to Melbourne and be around family and friends again.

"I enjoyed it up there - they're an exciting club at the Giants, and I've got some close mates up there.

"So I guess it was a tough decision. But I'm very excited with this."

Friday, 18 October 2013

The Demons gave up picks No.2, No.20 and No.72, receiving Tyson and picks No.9 and No.53.

Wednesday, 27 February 2013

Jonathon Patton, Dom Tyson, Will Hoskin-Elliott, Andrew Phillips and Sam Frost have committed until the end of the 2015 AFL season while Curtly Hampton and Aidan Corr signed through 2016.

"Everyone wants success, that is why you play the game and I think we are in the best position we can possibly be in," Patton said.

"The club has done an amazing job to put this list together. We have a lot of talent here. This is a great club to be at. This is a club you don't want to leave."

"It shows there are some good times in the near future hopefully."
