Banned Essendon forward Travis Colyer has signed a three year contract extension.

The deal keeps the 24-year-old at the club until the end of the 2019 season.

He is the second banned Bomber to re-sign, with Heath Hocking putting pen to paper on a new deal earlier this month.

“This contract will take me to 10 years at the Essendon Football Club,” Colyer said.

“The club means so much to me and is such an important part of my life.

“Working towards achieving success as a team is the ultimate reason you play football, and it’s the ultimate reason I wanted to come back to the football club.

“We’re in a position where we have such an exciting list, I can see the improvement in the young players and that success isn’t too far away.”

Colyer has kicked 40 goals in 57 games with Essendon since making his debut in 2010.
