St Kilda midfielder Zak Jones is reportedly poised to re-sign at Moorabbin after another year mostly spent battling injury.

Jones, who has frequently battled ailments during his time at the Saints, has penned a one-year contract extension, tying his future at St Kilda until at least the end of 2024.

The 28-year-old, who moved to St Kilda from Sydney ahead of the 2020 season, had an injury-riddled campaign in 2023, playing only four senior games from Round 17 to 20.

Initially reported by Seven reporter Mitch Cleary on Thursday morning, Jones is preparing to sign a one-year addendum despite his injury battles throughout the season.

Jones made a name for himself at the Swans as a hard-running and tough midfielder. Playing 90 games for the Harbour City club, Jones established himself as an integral piece of the Swans' talented midfield, alongside veterans Josh Kennedy and Luke Parker.

After moving to the Saints prior to the 2020 season, Jones played 16 out of a possible 19 games in his first year. Since the 2021 season, he has struggled with injuries that have seen his inclusion in the side become much more inconsistent.

Whilst Jones' future seems to be secured, there are still a number of Saints who remain out of contract at the end of 2023.

The most highly discussed is midfielder-forward Jade Gresham, who has recently been tied to Essendon as a potential landing spot. Earlier in the year, the 26-year-old had been linked to Carlton, with the Blues understood to have since cooled their interest in the Saint.


Utilities Hunter Clark and Liam Stocker both remain without deals, despite the pair playing in the elimination final defeat to the Giants.

Injury-riddled defender Nicholas Coffield has recently been linked with the Western Bulldogs, though the Saints are said to have extended an offer to the luckless defender.

Veteran Jimmy Webster and fourth-year player Ryan Byrnes also remain without deals.
