ST KILDA young gun Jack Billings has extended his contracted with the club for a further two seasons, tying him to the Saints until the end of 2017. 

Billings, who was already contracted for 2015, enjoyed a strong debut season, playing 16 games after he was recruited pick No.3 in the 2013 NAB AFL Draft. 

One of 19 players to sign contract extensions with the Saints in the past four weeks, the 19-year-old said he looked forward to helping the young group climb the ladder next season. 

"There are a lot of young boys now at the club and already we are starting to gel really well together," he told 

"We are pretty close off the field which is good and that will only strengthen as the years go on.

"It was good that a lot of young guys got a fair amount of opportunity this year, playing a fair few games.

"I'm really looking forward to the next couple of years and seeing how we can develop and progress as a young group."

The Saints are looking to secure three selections inside the top 21 in the upcoming NAB AFL Draft, with their No.1 pick on the table. 

The rebuilding list will remain young in 2015 as an aggressive rebuild continues, but Billings said that was exciting. 

"I'm really looking forward to having some new young guys around. I won't be the youngest so I won 't be picked on as much," he said. 

"I will definitely pass on some advice that I've learned this year and help them as much as I can.

"I've just really enjoyed it and getting exposed at senior level has been really good for me. Hopefully we can keep building with all the young guys for next year."

The Saints re-signed tall forward Tom Lee for a further two seasons earlier this week, as well as ruck recruit Billy Longer. 

Lee said it was humbling to be offered a contract extension after a frustrating start to his AFL career that has been interrupted by injury.

"It's good to know the coaches and the footy department have that faith in me to sign me for a further two years," he said. 

"We all have to work really hard towards a common goal and I think we're all doing that and it's really exciting."
