Gold Coast Suns captain Gary Ablett has agreed to a new multi-year contract extension, according to reports.
The 30-year-old was coming off contract at the end of next season, but it’s understood the new deal takes the star midfielder until the end of the 2018 season.
The new contract extension should now end speculation that Ablett could return to Geelong to finish his AFL career.
Ablett mid-year told media of his intentions to re-sign with the Suns, and according to The Australian, both parties have agreed to terms.
The newspaper reports Ablett will take a pay-cut on his original five-year deal he signed, but the dual Brownlow medallist will still earn more than $1 million a year.
Ablett was odds-on favourite to win a third Brownlow Medal this season before a shoulder injury ended his season seven games early.
