Rory Sloane will remain a Crow for at least the next season.

Adelaide star Rory Sloane has signed a three-year contract extension with the club.

Sloane’s signature is a huge show of faith in the club, with rumours circulating that several Victorian clubs were interested in trying to lure the onballer back home.

But Sloane said he was thrilled to agree to terms to stay at Adelaide until at least the end of 2018.

“I have said many times before how much I respect and love this Club and, in particular, the playing group,” Sloane said.

“With the support of my fiancé Belinda and family, I have been in constant talks with the Club and am thrilled to sign a new deal.

“Our Club is built on a team-first attitude and elite standards and it allows us all to thrive and improve, and there is no doubt success lies ahead.”

Sloane has played 107 games with the Crows since making his debut in 2009, after he was recruited with pick No. 44 in the 2008 National Draft from Upwey-Tecoma.
