Western Bulldogs veteran Tom Liberatore appears set to extend his time at the Kennel, with the inside midfielder reportedly poised to pen a one-year extension ahead of the 2024 season.

Drafted as a father-son selection with the 40th pick of the 2010 AFL Draft, Liberatore, the offspring of Brownlow medallist Tony Liberatore, has continued the family legacy of hard-nosed, ball-first attack in red, white and blue, representing the Dogs on 216 occasions.

According to reports from News Corp, the 31-year-old is set to sit down with the club within the next week, with both parties keen to extend their relationship into a 15th season.

While a one-time best and fairest winner, one who has finished on the podium on a further four occasions, Liberatore has remained the Robin to Marcus Bontempelli's Batman, going about his work quietly, racking up averages of 25.2 disposals and 7.6 clearances per game across the past three seasons; slotting 31 goals to boot.

Liberatore strengthened his role as second-in-charge this week after being named as the Bulldogs' vice-captain.

The gun extractor and the Bulldogs will do battle against Hawthorn twice across the course of the pre-season before facing contemporary rivals Melbourne at the MCG on Sunday, March 17 to start their season proper.
