Carlton forward Levi Casboult has turned his back on rival offers to sign a two-year contract extension with the club.

The new deal will see the 27-year-old remain in navy blue until the end of the 2019 season.

Casboult has enjoyed his best season in front of the stick this year, kicking 34 goals

“Levi has made pleasing improvements across his game this season, and has committed himself to continually developing as a key forward,” head of football Andrew McKay said.

“He has been leading a very young forward line this year, and provides a strong target for us.

“Levi is a Carlton person and we’re really pleased he has chosen to remain at the Blues for a further two years in what will be an exciting period ahead for the Club.”

Casboult has played 94 games for the Blues, kicking 105 goals.
