MITCH Duncan will play out his career at Geelong after signing a four-year contract extension.

The new deal keeps the 2011 premiership midfielder – who was eligible for free aganecy at the end of next year – at the Cats until the end of 2024, at which time he will be 33-years-old.

“The club is delighted to see Mitch commit to the club,” football boss Simon Lloyd said.

“Mitch has been a mainstay of our team over 10 seasons, a dependable, intelligent teammate and a quality player.

“Our members and supporters have watched Mitch’s career unfold and we all look forward to it continuing over the next five seasons.”

Drafted with pick No.28 in the 2009 National Draft from East Perth after representing Western Australia at under-18 level, he has played 203 games and kicked 146 goals.

He played every game in 2019 until suffering a knee injury in the qualifying final loss to Collingwood that ended his season.

News of Duncan’s re-signing has come just hours after Geelong confirmed Gary Rohan had signed a one-year contract extension.
