Melbourne's Daniel Turner has recommitted to the club for a further two years, making him a Demon until at least the end of 2024.

The luckless debutant suffered a game ending facial injury in game number one and has been sidelined since, but is nearing a return to senior level.

Drafted with pick no. 24 in the 2021 Mid-Season Rookie Draft, Turner has quickly impressed at the club, earning himself a new deal to secure his future.

While inking his name until the end of 2024, Turner will remain on the rookie list until the beginning of that very season.

Melbourne's List Manager Tim Lamb spoke highly of the 20-year-old to Melbourne Media, crediting Turner's contract extension to his impressive work ethic.

“Since his arrival via the 2021 Mid-Season Rookie Draft, Daniel has thrown himself into the program and got his game to a level where he was selected in the senior side for the Queen’s Birthday game,” Lamb said.

“He has quickly earned the respect of his teammates and coaches with his work ethic and desire to improve.

“We think he has a really bright future and we look forward to watching him develop over the coming years.”

Turner is just one recent re-signing for the Demons, with star Clayton Oliver inking a mega extension last week to commit to the club until 2030.
