Nathan Drummond has extended his contract with Richmond

RICHMOND midfielder Nathan Drummond has signed a one-year contract extension through to the end of 2017 as he closes in on his return from a knee reconstruction. 

Drummond, who has been sidelined since early last season, is expected to join the Tigers' main training group in the next fortnight after a long pre-season on a managed program. 

The 21-year-old has impressed with his resilience during his recovery, which included a trip to Florida’s IMG Academy last December. 

"Nathan’s commitment to his rehabilitation has been impressive and we can’t wait to see him return to the field this year," football manager Dan Richardson said. 

"He has progressed well over the pre-season and is a promising young player for our club.  We’re really pleased to extend his contract." 

Drummond was taken at pick No.52 in the 2014 NAB AFL Draft, and made his debut in round four last season.

He ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the second quarter of that match when backing into a pack. 

A versatile midfielder, Drummond will be aiming to impress with his neat kicking and elite running in the VFL this season before pushing for senior selection.
