Melbourne’s Jesse Hogan says he is considering signing a long-term contract extension with the Dees.

Hogan told the Herald Sun that he is willing to sign an extension that would lock him away well past his current 2017 contract expiry.

“We have started (contract) discussions and we are not too deep into it. I have still got two years on my contract and it’s not the most urgent thing but I am open to it,’’ he said.

“I sat down with Goody and Roosy and Peter Jackson and had a presentation and it was laid out,’’ he said.

“It was good, a lot of clubs do that but I really agreed with the direction of the club and a lot of stuff made sense.

“The direction for the next three years was very promising.”
