Aaron Hall has signed a new three-year deal with the club

GOLD Coast utility Aaron Hall has signed a three-year contract extension with the Suns.

The 24-year-old agreed to stay at Metricon Stadium until the end of 2018 on the back of a career-best burst to finish the season.

After being moved into the midfield, Hall averaged 27 disposals a match over the final seven rounds and finished seventh in the Suns' best and fairest.

"I'm really excited to commit to the club for what I’m sure will be a very exciting and successful period over the next three years," Hall told the club's website.

Hall had a difficult start to the year, playing just five of the opening 12 games at half-forward after groin surgery severely restricted his pre-season.

With the Suns midfield decimated by injury, coach Rodney Eade gave the Tasmanian a chance closer to the action in round 17 against Adelaide and he did not disappoint.

"I loved the opportunity Rocket gave me to play through the midfield in the latter part of the season, and I am really encouraged by his commitment to utilising me as part of a full-strength midfield rotation next year," Hall said.

Defender Seb Tape has also signed a one-year extension.
