A trio of Bulldogs have committed to the club by penning new deals to remain at Whitten Oval for the 2023 season.

The club has announced that experienced forward Mitch Hannan, along with young pups Buku Khamis and Dominic Bedendo have all extended their deals at the Bulldogs.

Hannan, who played for Footscray in the VFL prior to being drafted as a mature-ager by the Demons in 2016, returned to the Kennel in 2021.

The 28-year-old has played 70 career games, including 20 for the Bulldogs in the last couple of seasons, averaging over a goal per game throughout his career, but is currently out with ongoing concussion issues.

The club's General Manager of List and Recruiting, Sam Power, said he was delighted to keep Hannan and hopes he'll return to the field soon.

"Mitch has been a really important player to us since moving across from Melbourne and we're excited to have him on board for another season," Power told westernbulldogs.com.au.

"Despite a few setbacks, Mitch has been a mainstay of our forward line and we look forward to welcoming him back to footy within the next couple of weeks".

Defender-turned-forward Buku Khamis was the club's first-ever Next Generation Academy selection in 2018 and made in debut for the club in 2021.

Khamis has featured five times for the Bulldogs in 2022, playing forward alongside spearhead Aaron Naughton, with the 22-year-old kicking six goals so far this season.

Untried youngster Dom Bedendo was drafted to the club with the 55th pick in the 2020 National Draft. The 19-year-old has impressed this season in the VFL for Footscray, with a debut not too far away for the utility.

Power said the club were thrilled to keep the youngsters at the club and excited to see their development for the coming seasons.

"Buku and Dom have been emerging players for us and are starting to show their potential at VFL and AFL level," he said.

"Their attitude of always wanting to improve and consistent growth has the Club excited about their development over the next 12 months within our program.

'It's another show of faith from these individuals in what we are building at the Bulldogs, re-committing to the Club for next season and beyond."
