North Melbourne appears poised to strengthen its stocks of young talent, with former first-round draftee Tom Powell poised to pen a two-year extension to remain at Arden Street until the end of 2026.

Since joining the Roos' chorus after being selected with the 13th pick of the 2020 AFL Draft, the see-ball, get-ball South Australian has worn blue and white bars on 46 occasions.

As first reported by AFL Media, Powell is yet to put pen to paper on any deal with the club, however, an agreement between both parties is said to be imminent.

Should the Sturt product sign on, Powell would join the club's catalyst of gun prospects who have already tied their futures to the club, following in the footsteps of George Wardlaw (2026), Jy Simpkin and Nick Larkey (2029), as well as reigning Ron Evans Medal winner Harry Sheezel (2030).

Though only just having turned 22, Powell has already announced himself as a breakout candidate for the 2024 season after collecting 26 disposals and six clearances in the Kangaroos' Round 1 defeat to the Giants last Saturday.

These exceed previous markers laid down by Powell, with the youngster averaging south of 24 disposals and 2.17 clearances across the course of his three years and change with the club.

Powell and his Roos are next scheduled to play this Saturday afternoon at Marvel Stadium against Fremantle.
