GIANTS forward Brent Daniels has signed a four-year contract extension, tying him to the club until the end of 2025.
“I was really excited to get it done,” Daniels said.
“It’s been in the works for a little bit so I was just pleased to get it done and now I can just focus on getting back on the park.
“I love it here and I’ve really grown to enjoy Sydney. I’ve made some great mates along the way so I didn’t really have any reason not to sign on.
“I’m just glad to get it done. We’ve got a young group coming through and I’m really excited for the future.”
The 22-year-old is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury but before that has barely missed a game in the years since making his AFL debut in round 16, 2018, playing 55 games and kicking 21 goals in that time.
The Swan Hill goal sneak - who was selected at pick 27 in the 2017 national draft - kicked a memorable goal to help the GIANTS beat the Lions in the 2019 semi-final.
“Time’s definitely flown, it feels like yesterday I was living at Breakfast Point,” he said.
“It’s been a great journey so far. I’ve worked my way into the starting team and I’ve been really happy with that.
“Now it’s just building on what I’ve done, really just growing my game and continuing to improve.
“As I said before, we’ve got a young list coming through so we’re all pushing each other to get better and I’m sure there’s going to be some good times ahead.”
GIANTS General Manager of Football Jason McCartney said he was pleased to secure Daniels’ signature, following Lachie Ash and Lachlan Keeffe re-signing with the club and Toby Greene adding another two years to his contract.
“Brent’s a great young player for us and really important to our side,” McCartney said.
“He’s important to us on the field but equally a really strong contributor off it too, and one of our young emerging leaders of the club.
“We’re thrilled to have him as a GIANT for another four years.”
The GIANTS take on the West Coast Eagles on Sunday at 1:10pm at GIANTS Stadium.
