OLLIE Wines looks set to see out his career at Port Adelaide after signing a contract extension that will keep him at the club until at least the end of 2026.

The 26-year-old, who has played 158 games for the Power since debuting in 2013, was already contracted until the end of the 2022 season but has added a further four years to that deal.

“The club is in a really strong position going forward and to be able to be a part of its long-term future is something I’m looking forward to,” Wines said.

 “I think we’ve built a powerful list that I’m excited about, so I was only too happy to jump at the opportunity to be locked away to allow me to concentrate on doing what I need to do to put us in a position to chase our premiership goals.

“I’m so excited to be part of this young developing group, and I can’t wait to see what we can do together.”

MEANWHILE, Melbourne has signed five players to new one-year deals.

Jay Lockhart, who has been upgraded to the senior list, Toby Bedford and James Jordon have been offered new deals, while former Geelong and Essendon forward Mitch Brown and Kade Chandler have been retained as rookies.
