Carlton ruckman Matthew Kreuzer has signed a new two-year deal with the Blues.

Kreuzer was widely tipped to leave the club, but after reportedly failing medicals at two clubs, the former No.1 draft pick signed a new deal to keep him at the Blues until at least the end of 2017.

The injury-prone 26-year-old enjoyed a promising end to the season, after overcoming foot, knee and hip problems earlier in the year.

He has played 119 games since making his debut in round three, 2008.
