MIDFIELDER James Jordon has signed a contract extension which will see him remain in the red and blue until at least the end of 2023.

The 20-year-old made his AFL debut in Round One this year and hasn’t looked back, playing a role in all six of Melbourne’s wins this season.

“We are really pleased that James has committed for a further two seasons,” List Manager Tim Lamb told Melbourne Media.

“Since joining the club, James has worked diligently on all parts of his game and is now getting reward for that hard work.

“He is a really mature young man with a terrific attitude and his improvement is a credit to both himself and our development program.

“We look forward to watching his game further improve over the next few seasons with us.”

Averaging 15 disposals per game, Jordon’s versatility and ability to attack the ball has seen him become an integral part of the team.

Jordon joins an impressive list of recently signed players including captain Max Gawn and midfielders Clayton Oliver and Christian Salem.

From Yarrawonga, Jordon was selected by Melbourne with pick No. 33 in the 2018 National Draft.
