GEELONG midfielder Brandan Parfitt is going nowhere until at least the end of 2022 after signing a two-year contract extension.

The 22-year-old, who was drafted in 2016 from SANFL club North Adelaide, has played 72 games since debuting in the opening round of 2017.

“Brandan is an integral part of our future, so we’re pleased to have secured him until the end of 2022,” General Manager of Football Simon Lloyd said.

 “Since arriving at the club, he has developed into one of the club’s most versatile players, and we are excited to see where he can take his game in the next two seasons.

 “Brandan displays the values we aspire to live by and is part of a nucleus of young players that represent an exciting future for the Geelong Football Club.”

Parfitt finished second for tackles in the AFL and averaged 16 disposals a game in 2020.
