Star veteran Shaun Burgoyne has re-signed with Hawthorn for 2016.

The three-time premiership utility was due to come out of contract at the end of this season but has penned a deal for him to play on next year.

The Hawks’ deal with Burgoyne, 32, follows the re-signings of fellow key veterans Sam Mitchell, 32, and Luke Hodge, 30, for 2016 in the past two months.

Burgoyne said re-signing was “an easy decision to make”.
