Brisbane defender Tom Cutler has agreed to a two-year contract extension with the club, which will see him remain with the Lions until at least the end of the 2017 season.
In his maiden season at the Lions, Cutler played seven games after making his debut in round four against Port Adelaide.
The 19-year-old struggled with a groin injury early in the season before undergoing surgery on a minor knee injury in August.
Lions football operations manager Dean Warren said the re-signing of Cutler was exciting for the club.
“Tom will play an important part in the future success of our football Club and it’s great to secure his services until at least the end of the 2017 season,” Warren told the club’s website.
“He has really settled into life in Brisbane since making the move from Melbourne and has definitely showed plenty of signs that he is set for a big future with the Brisbane Lions.
“We have secured a wealth of our young talent this year and added some real depth to our side, it is no doubt an exciting time for our fans.”
Cutler was selected at pick 33 of the 2013 national draft.
