The Blues have announced the re-signing of Levi Casboult and Nick Graham on two-year deals.
Carlton has moved quickly to ward off growing interest in in exciting key forward Levi Casboult by the re-signing the youngster for two more seasons, while emerging midfielder Nick Graham has also committed to the Blues until 2016.
24-year-old Casboult enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2014, playing 19 games and kicking 15 goals.
The 199cm giant emerged as one of the best pack marks in the competition, and finishing the season ranked ninth in the AFL and first at Carlton for contested marks.
Casboult came out of contract at the end of the season and was understood to have being chased by a number of rival clubs, with the Western Bulldogs reportedly the most interested.
Graham played eight games for the Blues in 2014 and impressed with his classy ball use.
Blues football operations manager Andrew McKay said he expected both Casboult and Graham to become vital components of the Carlton side in the future.
“Levi has solidified a place in our forward line this year and has noticeably grown in confidence,” McKay said.
“Nick has shown great potential and demonstrated his ability to be a ball-winner in the midfield.
“We believe both players will play key roles in our team going forward.”
