Yarran will re-sign with the Blues despite interest in a return to Western Australia.
Chris Yarran looks set to commit his future to Carlton for a further two-years with an announcement expecting over the coming days.
By re-signing with the Blues, Yarran will close the door on a possible return to Western Australia when he was due to come out of contract at the end of the season.
After the club re-signed Bryce Gibbs to a five-year deal yesterday, acting chief executive Andrew McKay said the Yarran was close to putting pen-to-paper with the Blues.
“Chris is pretty close – you should hear about that hopefully in the next few days,” McKay told SEN.
“[Length] is still up for negotiation to a degree but hopefully on the two [years].”
The 23-year-old has played in all but one of Carlton’s matches this season, averaging 16.6 disposals per game.
Recruited from Western Australia at pick no.6 in the 2008 National Draft, there was speculation that he would return to WA with either Fremantle and West Coast.
