Port Adelaide defender Tom Jonas has re-signed with the club on a new three-year deal.

The 27-year old was contracted for next season, but has recommitted to the club until the end of the 2022 campaign.

Jonas was pleased to continue his journey at Alberton.

“You do pinch yourself sometimes for where you’ve been and where we are at now as a club,” Jonas told the club website.

“I’m extremely grateful to the club for showing so much faith in me throughout my footy journey.

“I’m proud to say that I’ve been part of it and I’m looking forward to continuing to work hard and gearing up for a new campaign.”

Jonas made his debut Port Adelaide in 2011 and has played 121 senior games for the club. He has been dubbed one of the potential candidates to take over from Travis Boak as the Power’s next skipper.

“It’s hugely exciting what we’ve got at our ,” Jonas said.

“We’ve got 20 players that are new to the group in the last two years, we’ve got some high draft picks and at the same time we’ve got a good crop of current players that are playing some good footy and are right in the peak of their footy powers, so we’re really excited what we can achieve.

“We’ve also got some new coaches with a lot of bright ideas so the only way is up for us, and I’m very excited about the future.”
