Western Bulldogs star Marcus Bontempelli has pledged his future to the Bulldogs by signing a two-year contract extension.

Bontempelli will now remain at the Whitten Oval until the end of 2021, after being due to come out of contract at the conclusion of the 2019 season.

The 22-year-old is delighted to have re-signed the Dogs and is excited about the future holds with their young list.

“I’ve made no secret about the love I have for the club, and how I want to play a key role in the future success of this playing group,” Bontempelli told the club’s website.

“I had no hesitation in getting it finalised now, with a year still to go on my contract, so I can concentrate all my energy on playing footy and helping the team.

“We have a really talented group of young players, and I’m excited about what they are capable of producing with a bit more experience under their belts.

“We have created a great environment and we have the right program and people in place to take this group to the next level.”

Bontempelli has already enjoyed a decorated 104-game career for the Bulldogs having claimed two Charlie Sutton Medals and playing an instrumental role in the club’s 2016 premiership triumph.
