The young gun has signed a two-year extension with the Eagles.
West Coast Eagles key position player Jeremy McGovern has signed a two-year contract extension with the club.
McGovern made his debut against Carlton in Round 6 and has since become a shining light in an Eagles side enduring a tough season.
The 22-year-old was promoted to the Eagles’ senior list this season after three years as a rookie and has taken his opportunity well.
Eagles football manager Craig Vozzo said McGovern was a key player for the club.
“Jeremy has made a good start to his career and we believe there is great upside in him,” Vozzo said.
“It is hard not to be impressed by what he has achieved at this early stage of his career, but we also know there is a way to go before he fulfils his potential.
“We see him as an important part of our future, as a key position player who is able to adapt to either end of the ground.”
McGovern said he was excited to be given the opportunity to extend his career at the WA club.
“Obviously I am really enjoying my footy at the moment,” McGovern said.
“I got off to a bit of a rocky start when I turned up out of shape for pre-season training, but Simmo had an honest chat with me and he has helped me turn things around.
“He has been very supportive and I really appreciate the chances he has given me. I’m also grateful to the club for sticking by me through the tough times.
“We have an exciting squad and I look forward to playing my role in helping the club reach its potential.
“The boys are all great and it was a no-brainer to sign for another couple of years.”
