Sydney midfielder Sam Wicks has signed a new two-year deal to remain in red and white until the end of the 2023 season.

Wicks enjoyed a stellar 2021 season with the Swans, playing 22 games and booting 17 goals in a key role for John Longmire's side.

The 22-year-old joined Sydney as a rookie selection in 2018 from the club's NEAFL Academy and was elevated to the Swans' senior list last year.

Wicks was among a bevy of young Swans to show great potential this season, joining fellow Swans Academy graduates Braden Campbell and Errol Gulden in having strong campaigns in the Harbour City.

Speaking on the announcement, Wicks stated he "couldn't be happier" to recommit to the Bloods for another season.

"I think we have a really exciting group of boys who can possibly do something special in the next few years," Wicks said.

"I was always planning to re-sign with Sydney. I obviously grew up here so I am really happy living here and I am excited to put pen to paper for the next two years.
