Lions veteran Amon Buchanan has announced his retirement, ending a career that has spanned 10 seasons.

"Amon has been a terrific servant of the Lions, and in particular as a mentor to our younger brigade coming through the reserves," Lions football operations manager Dean Warren said.

Amon Buchanan says 2012 will be an important year for him.

"(It's the) last year coming up on the contract so it's got to be a big year for me," he said.

"I've had a good pre-season so hopefully I can get in early, play some good footy. I've just got to get in and get my hands on the nut, win a bit of footy, kick a few goals; it's pretty simple."

Monday, 5 October 2009
West Coast, the Sydney Swans and the Lions look to have arranged for four players to change clubs.

Amon Buchanan and Brent Staker will head to Brisbane, Sydney will acquire Mark Seaby while the Eagles are set to gain Brad Dalziell.

"It's a good opportunity for him (Buchanan). We had some discussion with him at the end of the year - both us and Amon were undecided - should he stay at Sydney or should he go," Sydney coach Paul Roos said.

"He's a premiership player and a fantastic player, but probably his past couple of years he's been battling a little bit.

"Brisbane was interested, so we were happy to facilitate that, which means we can get Seaby in."
