Gold Coast have confimed swingman Jack Lukosius has inked a new four-year deal that will see the South Australian remain with the Suns until the end of the 2026 season.

In what is a major retention signing for Stuart Dew's cause, Lukosius will turn his back on interest from clubs in his home state to remain in Queensland for the long-term

“I couldn’t be happier to commit for four more years at the Suns, I’m really grateful that they’ve showed the faith in me to play here and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else,” Lukosius told Suns Media.

“It was a decision that I wanted to come to myself, I didn’t want to rush it or be influenced by anyone else. I clearly took my time and it’s one that I couldn’t be happier with.

“We’ve put in some hard work over the past few years, we’re starting to see some rewards now and I think that’s really exciting.

“The work’s not done and as we go forward into our journey we’re really hungry to make sure that we earn all the success that we get as a playing group.

“I’m just keen to get back out on the field and hopefully play my role in taking the club forward to where we want to go.”

Lukosius has played 66 games in four seasons at the Suns, having joined the club as the second overall selection in the 2019 National Draft.

Able to play across all three lines of the field, the Woodville-West Torrens product offers a sublime service to his side with his elite left foot.

The 21-year-old hasn't featured in Dew's side since Round 8 due to a PCL injury to his knee and is likely to return in the coming weeks.

With Lukoisus and star forward Ben King re-signed for the future, attention now turns to in-form goalsneak Izak Rankine, who remains unsigned for 2023.
