GWS midfielder Jacob Hopper has told Giants fans he is re-signing with the club for a further two years.

At a Family Fun day with the club, Hopper told fans he had signed a deal that will see him remain a Giant until at least the end of the 2019 season.

Hopper had reportedly been the subject of interest from a number of Victorian teams, with Geelong, Carlton and St Kilda, said to be very interested in the 20-year-old.

With Hopper’s future now sealed, the Giants will continue to work on securing the future of highly-rated duo Josh Kelly and Devon Smith.

Kelly, who was named to his first All-Australian team just last week, is reportedly contemplating a move back home to Victoria, while a number of clubs are also interested in Smith, with the Cats also keen on the forward.

Despite missing the middle chunk of the season through injury, Hopper managed to play 10 games for GWS in 2017 and averaged 15.8 disposals, 2.6 marks, 5.3 tackles and 2.6 clearances per game.
