Former Laois footballer Zach Tuohy is set to complete a move from Carlton to AFL rivals Geelong this week.

The 26-year-old is expected to sign a four-year deal this week which will see him link up with former Kerry Minor All-Ireland winner captain Mark O'Connor, who announced on Tuesday that he has agreed an International Rookie Contract with Geelong.

Since moving to Australia in 2011, Tuohy has represented Carlton who are based in Melbourne.

Earlier this year, he played his 100th match for Carlton.

Tuohy won a Leinster Minor title with Laois in 2007.
