COLLINGWOOD captain Scott Pendlebury has signed a contract extension to tie him to the club until the end of 2021.
With the Magpies now locking in Pendlebury and Brodie Grundy, the attention turns to Jordan De Goey and Darcy Moore as key players set to come out of contract at the end of 2020.
The gun midfielder has put together some of the best football of his career in recent times, finishing second in Collingwood's Copeland Trophy in 2019.
The 32-year-old has not missed a game in the last two seasons and has averaged 27 disposals over that time.
Collingwood list manager Ned Guy had high praise for the veteran.
"Scott sets an example in the way he plays, trains and leads. His value to Collingwood is immense," Guy said.
"His achievements speak for themselves but the influence of his professional dedication and constant search for improvement are so important to those around him. Very few can win six All-Australian blazers but everyone can learn something from a footballer who has played 20 or more matches in 12 of his 14 seasons and holds to the standard he does."
