As reported by senior Fox Footy reporter Tom Morris on AFL Tonight, Morris outlined how Eagles fans should be hopeful that Brander will stay at the club beyond this season.
"Brander has enjoyed a breakout season for West Coast," Morris said on AFL Tonight.
"Though contract discussions have not begun yet, there is a general goodwill from the club and his manager from Hemisphere that they will get underway soon."
"Two years ago Brander would have been at long odds to stay in Perth beyond his current contract, but he’s really settled this year and has even been spending some time in the midfield."
"There will always be interest from the Cats given that is where he grew up, but as I understand it he’s very happy at West Coast and is looking more and more likely to extend – even by two years – by the week," Morris added.
"West Coast fans should be confident of keeping him and these formal chats should confirm that."
