GREATER Western Sydney star Tom Scully helped build the AFL's newest club and can't wait to be around for what could be an extremely successful era in the next decade.

Scully came to the Giants as their second established player signing in 2011 – one week after former Western Bulldog Callan Ward – joining GWS after two seasons at Melbourne in a controversial move north.

The former number one draft pick took some time to produce his best footy while the young Giants struggled in their formative years, but over the past three seasons has been outstanding on the wing under coach Leon Cameron despite some injury troubles.

One of the League's best runners, Scully has played all 11 games in 2016 and is averaging a career-high 24.4 possessions a game, and has also kicked 14 goal, already three more than his best ever season-haul in 2013.

There are reports that the Giants will have to find around $600,000 in their salary cap at the end of the year, but while Scully is the club's highest-paid player there's little doubt his future lies in Sydney.

The gun onballer is contracted until the end of 2017, and told that he intends to remain a Giant when his current six-year, multi-million dollar deal expires.

"I've certainly got intentions to stay on," Scully said.

"I knew coming up here on a long-term deal that I was in for the long haul and I don't really think about it too much.

"We've all put a lot of time and effort into trying to help this footy club grow and develop and I'd like to think that I'll be around for quite a long time."

You get the feeling by listening to Scully speak about his future that he doesn't exactly lay awake at night thinking about his contract status, and with good reason.

The recently turned 25-year-old is one of his side's most important players, he's in brilliant form, and is settled with his partner in western Sydney.

Scully said he wasn't sure when his new deal would get done.

"It's an interesting one, I've only been through one contract negotiation, so it's sort of a bit foreign to me," he said.

"It really hasn't entered my mind.

"Guys vary, some don't mind playing knowing that they're out of contract because it puts a bit of pressure on them to perform.

"Others like that added security and put their hand up to sign on, I really think it varies with each individual."

One thing Scully is sure about is the positive way the Giants are travelling on and off the field and he's rapt that so many of his teammates feel the same.

Over the past two seasons the club has re-signed co-captains Callan Ward and Phil Davis, four-time leading goalkicker Jeremy Cameron, emerging leaders Dylan Shiel, Stephen Coniglio, Devon Smith and Lachie Whitfield, as well as a host of other star talent.

Scully said a loyal and committed playing group is the key to the Giants having sustained success on the field, and being part of the club's first final, and a historic inaugural premiership, is a massive driving force.

"It's a great endorsement for the footy club that a lot of those guys have re-signed and they truly believe that we're heading in the right direction," Scully said.

"It's great that they've committed and see their future here.

"The more guys we can get thinking along those lines and all committing to the same cause, it's only going to help us.

"If you look at recent history, the sides that go deep into finals and win premierships are the ones that have been together for a while.

"They've been able to build that over years and years of playing together.

"That's certainly something we're trying to emulate here but it takes a lot for guys to say they want to be here and put their hand up. 

"Hopefully we can get more guys saying that, than not."
