Collingwood defender Nathan Brown has moved to St Kilda as a restricted free agent.

Brown has made the move after the Pies refused to match St Kilda's offer.

The defender played 130 games for the Magpies across nine seasons.

St Kilda chief operationg officer Ameet Bains said Brown was an excellent recruit for the club.

"Nathan is a handy acquisition for the club and will obviously strengthen our defence," Bains said.

"Bringing Nathan in as a free agent also allows us to fill a key need without compromising our overall trade position; an important consideration given the trades we have completed during this exchange period.

"His ability to hold down a key defensive post makes him an attractive prospect for where our list is currently placed.

"In addition to his experience and leadership on the field, Nathan is a terrific person off the field and we look forward to him joining our ranks."
