Emerging youngster Jack Silvagni has signed a two-year contract extension at Carlton.

Silvagni has flourished since the arrival of newly-appointed senior coach David Teague, averaging 14.1 disposals, 4.6 marks and 3.8 tackles per game in 2019.

The versatile Blue will remain at Ikon Park until at least the end of 2021.

“It is special to play for this football club, I’m excited to re-sign and repay the faith shown in me,” Silvagni told carltonfc.com.au.

“The group here is showing signs that the hard work is paying off and we are on the right track to take this club forward, I really do believe that.

“I look forward to working as hard as I can to help this group achieve the success.”

The 21-year-old has played 59 games for Carlton since selected as a father-son with pick No.53 in the 2015 AFL Draft.

Jack is the son of Blues legend and current list manager Stephen Silvagni who played 312 games and won two premierships for the club.

His grandfather Sergio Silvagni also won two flags in 239 games in the navy blue.
