COLLINGWOOD youngster Nathan Murphy has re-signed with the club until 2020.

The promising first-year Pie is yet to make his senior debut, having been recruited to the club with the 39th pick in last year's draft, but has inked a one-year extension.

The versatile utility has played at both ends of the field in the VFL this season, featuring in every game for Collingwood's reserves side and averaging 15 disposals per match.

"You just want to get in there and play straight away," Murphy told the Collingwood website. 

"But there's no rush to crack the seniors at the moment. I'd love to be saying that I'm playing every game in 2020."

The news of Murphy's re-signing comes after father-son duo Callum and Tyler Brown both recommitted to Collingwood until the end of 2020 on Monday.
