Rising Star winner Harry Sheezel will see his services tied to North Melbourne until the end of 2030 after inking a new four-year extension.

The second-year Roo made an instant impression on the AFL in his maiden campaign last year, breaking the season disposals record for a rookie on his way to being crowned North Melbourne's best and fairest.

Sheezel collected 34 disposals in his debut game against West Coast in Round 1, and within days had his contract extended until the end of the 2026 season via a two-year extension.

His ties at Arden Street have now been extended for a further four years, with the club confirming on Thursday that Sheezel has signed a new contract that will keep him in the blue and white until the end of 2030 - seeing him become the Kangaroo with the longest contract.

“I am very excited and very grateful as well for the club for giving me the opportunity to sign on for that long,” he said in a club statement.

“I love the club and wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

“Ever since I walked in the door, I've just loved the place – the players, the coaching staff and just the whole environment at the club. They've made me and my family feel so welcome.”

Co-captain Jy Simpkin and spearhead Nick Larkey both recommitted to the club until the end of 2029 last year, with Sheezel's signature adding to the Roos' settled future stocks.

New recruits Dylan Stephens and Zac Fisher are also on long-term deals, having inked four-year contracts after moving from Sydney and Carlton respectively over the off-season.

A contract until the end of 2030 for Sheezel is among the longest active contracts in the AFL, with only Western Bulldogs forward Aaron Naughton (2032), Port Adelaide captain Connor Rozee (2032) and Sydney dasher Nick Blakey (2031) penned into the next decade on longer deals.

Sheezel played all 23 games for the Kangaroos in his first year with the club, averaging 27.04 possessions, 5.43 marks, 5.22 rebound 50s and 2.91 tackles in a defensive role.

While dealing with Sheezel's future ahead of the new season, the Roos will also be looking to settle new deals for a host of off-contract players this year - a list that includes Cameron Zurhaar, Bailey Scott, Will Phillips, Tom Powell and Charlie Lazzaro.
