Fremantle defender Jordan Clark has recently put pen to paper, signing on for an extra three seasons, locking him in at the club until the end of 2028.

Clark - who was already contracted for next year - put the Dockers at ease when tacking on another three years to his current deal, saying the decision was easy.

"For me, it was a no-brainer,” Clark said.

"Playing in front of the people who mean the most to you every second week is kind of an advantage in a way, and it was something I missed a bit.

“Getting to play another three years of that is really exciting and something I don't take for granted that's for sure.”

After being taken with Pick 15 in the 2018 National Draft by Geelong, Clark made the move back to his home state ahead of the 2022 season.

Playing 52 consecutive games since joining the Dockers, the former Cat has secured a spot in Justin Longmuir's side across halfback, with his start to 2024 the best we've seen yet.

Fremantle Head of Player Personnel David Walls paid tribute to the way Clark has elevated his game, saying he's as committed to the club as anyone.

“Jordan is all-in at Fremantle. He plays with real passion, bleeds purple and has become an integral part of our back seven,” Walls said.

“He is growing into a real leader on and off the field.”

“We wanted him, we targeted him and traded to bring him home.

“He's playing great football this season and to sign him long-term is fantastic for our Club.”

In the five matches so far this year, Clark ranks above average or elite in all key metrics as a defender but attributes his rise in form to his teammates.

“Obviously it's nice to be playing well and to have that confidence in my game at the moment, but there are a lot of other factors that are allowing me to play the way I play,” Clark said.

“This game isn't about the individual success or performance for me. I just want to win. I want our team to win. I want us to be playing finals and for this Club to be successful.”
