Richmond young gun, Daniel Rioli, is reportedly set to sign a long-term contract extension with the club.

The Herald Sun reports the second year player is currently in talks with the club to extend his contract beyond this year, after playing 18 games and kicking 13 goals in his debut season in 2016.

His management told News Limited he is prepared to sign a three-year deal, despite only being very early in his career.

“We are in discussions at the moment. I don’t think we will have an issue with the contract itself,” Rioli’s manager Koutoufides told the Herald Sun.

“It will be multiple years, it might be (three), we are working through that. I don’t see any issue with the contract itself.

“We have no intention of looking at another club or sounding out another club. We want him to stay at the Tigers and I am sure they want him.”

The 19-year-old was recruited with pick No.15 in the 2015 National Draft and averaged 10.2 disposals, 2.5 marks and 3.2 tackles per game last year.
