Swans veteran Jarrad McVeigh is set to play on into a 17th season after signing a one-year contract extension with Sydney.

Swans head of football Tom Harley made the announcement today through the club website.

“Jarrad has clearly been a highly valued member of our team for a long time now and it’s great to have him sign on for another season,” Harley told sydneyswans.com.au. 

“Jarrad’s been exceptional for us again this year, he’s an outstanding leader and for him to continue for another season is a great result for all.

“We look forward to seeing Jarrad continue to do what he does best during our upcoming finals campaign and for the 2019 season.”
