Despite rumoured interest from multiple clubs in the lead-up to this year's trade period, Western Bulldogs utility Buku Khamis has reportedly recommitted to the club on a one-year deal.

While Khamis has shown promise, he has found it tough to cement himself at the AFL level, leading some to question his playing future at the Kennel.

An athletic forward-defender at 191cm who is still very raw but undoubtedly has potential, Khamis was reportedly also considering his future after just one senior game this season, despite strong VFL form where he kicked 41 goals in 18 games.

With the Bulldogs' forward line boasting Aaron Naughton, Jamara Ugle-Hagan, Cody Weightman, and more, opportunities have been scarce. However, the 22-year-old has opted to remain at the Whitten Oval for at least one more season to fight for a spot.

Khamis was the Bulldogs' first-ever Next Generation Academy recruit, elevated to the Bulldogs' playing list as a pre-selected rookie in 2018.

Since then, he has played ten AFL games in his career, kicking six goals and averaging nine disposals after making his debut in 2021.

Despite having reportedly had interest from Collingwood and North Melbourne, after winning his second John Schultz Community Award for his dedication to the community, Khamis is clearly invested in doing his best for the Bulldogs.

The news is another boost in a good week for the Bulldogs after they announced the re-signing of Naughton to an eight-year deal, as well as the recent revelation that luckless Saint Nick Coffield has requested a trade to the club.
