FREMANTLE speedster Ed Langdon is parking contract talks, preferring to pour his focus into becoming a more consistent footballer at home and on the road.
Langdon has previously been the subject of speculation about a move back to Victoria, and attracted interest from Collingwood, where his brother Tom plays, and Melbourne, which lacks line-breaking runners.
The 23-year-old signed a two-year deal in August 2017 and while he is "absolutely" happy at Freo and believed in the club's direction, the dashing wingman indicated he won't be rushing to negotiate an extension.

"Not huge movement (with the contract), to be honest. It's probably not something I'll look to address until the back half of the year and I'll have those discussions then," Langdon said on Thursday.
After starring in the Grand Final defeat, Langdon's older brother weighed up interest from Fremantle and Sydney last year before ultimately re-signing with the Magpies for three more seasons.

Langdon said playing together at some stage of their careers was "not particularly" an aim.
"I don't think I'll really address it until the end of the year, I don't want to complicate my footy too much at the moment," he said.
"I've played a few games with my brother, and you're always going to want to play with your brother, that's pretty natural.
"But it's not something I'll be considering anytime soon."
Fremantle would be loathe to lose Langdon after watching him blossom and finish fourth in the Doig Medal after a breakout 2018 campaign.
He played his 50th game in last round's Western Derby loss and shapes as a key to Fremantle's hopes of matching Greater Western Sydney's star onball brigade in Canberra on Saturday.
He ranks second behind returning superstar Nat Fyfe (28.7) for disposals at Freo this season with 26.8 per game, and third for rebound 50s and inside 50s (4.5).
Langdon's next challenge is to become more consistent away from home as the Dockers attempt to improve an ordinary record of one win from their past 13 interstate trips.
He was mighty at Optus Stadium last year, averaging 25 touches, but that dipped by almost eight disposals a game on the road.
"It's something I was really looking to improve this year. My home form was pretty good last year but when I played away I was a bit inconsistent," he said.
"I've been reasonably happy with my opening month but I'll be looking to improve.
"I still think I've got a few gears to climb through."
