Delisted Melbourne wingman Oskar Baker has officially joined the Western Bulldogs as a delisted free agent.

Baker was axed by the Demons this off-season after five seasons and 15 games at AFL level, seeing his career in the top flight in doubt.

The Bulldogs have since looked toward the Queenslander for midfield depth, having lost Lachie Hunter and Josh Dunkley through the trade period.

On Monday the Dogs confirmed Baker had joined the Bulldogs as a delisted free agency signing, see the 24-year-old secure a second chance in the AFL.

“Oskar comes to us with really exciting attributes that complement the current make up of our midfield,” Bulldogs list manager Sam Power said in a club statement.

“We felt it was important to add more speed to the group, particularly on the wing, and think Oskar will make an immediate impact.

“Oskar comes out of a successful program with five seasons of AFL experience and a fantastic work ethic. He is a great person that will be a welcome addition to our football program in the months to come.”

Baker joined the Demons as the 48th overall pick in the 2017 National Draft and made his debut in 2019 against West Coast.

He would be part of Casey's VFL premiership side this season before not being offered a new deal for 2023 by Melbourne.

Baker joins Jedd Busslinger, Charlie Clarke, Harvey Gallagher, Liam Jones and Rory Lobb in heading to the Western Bulldogs this off-season.
