The midfielder has resisted the lure of returning to Victoria to stay at the WA club.
Fremantle has locked-in its second star player this week, with David Mundy signing a three-year deal with the club which takes the midfielder until the end of the 2017 season.
The 28-year-old was due to come out of contract at the end of the season and said that family played a big part in his decision not to move back to Victoria.
“I’ve gone on public record to state that every time I have come out of contract it’s a heavy pull to go back to Victoria,” Mundy said.
“I wasn’t just looking at the next three or four or five years, I was looking ten years down the track about how I could best support my family.
“At the end of the day I’m playing good football at Fremantle, I’m thankful for them for giving me the opportunity and I’m enjoying my time here.”
The Victorian’s signature was understood to be heavily chased by traditional powerhouses Collingwood and Hawthorn, however Mundy said he was excited by Fremantle’s future both on and off the field.
“We’ve got a really strong playing group at the moment led by some fantastic coaches,” he said.
“The drive and the determination that exists in our training rooms and our training track is really translating onto the field so I am excited to be part of that moving forward.”
Mundy was drafted to Fremantle with pick 19 of the 2003 National Draft and has since 200 games for the club.
