Gold Coast have signed former Geelong midfielder Jordan Murdoch, after the Cats delisted him at season’s end.

Murdoch spent seven years at the Cats and played 108 games for the club, averaging 14 disposals and 3.6 tackles per game during him time at GMHBA Stadium.

The 26-year-old has moved to the Suns on a three-year deal, with Gold Coast’s General Manager of List and Strategy, Craig Cameron, excited by Murdoch’s arrival.

“Jordan provides us with elite speed and foot skills, to add balance to our midfield,” Cameron told goldcoastfc.com.au.

“He is a man of great character, has experience in a strong program at Geelong and will help to drive the professional standards here at the club.

“We’ve begun this off-season implementing a long-term strategy for this football club to ensure we have good balance across our entire list,” said Cameron.
