Nat Fyfe has signed a three year deal with Freo.

Ultimately, the best fit for me was to stay here in Freo
Star midfielder Nat Fyfe has committed to the club until the end of season 2017 after agreeing to a three-year contract extension with Fremantle.

The 22-year-old reigning Doig Medallist, who was out of contract at the end of this season, said he was excited to re-sign with the club.

 “I’ve really enjoyed playing with Freo and I’m from WA,” he said.

“Ultimately, the best fit for me was to stay here in Freo.”

The club’s position on and off the field also had a ‘big’ role to play in keeping Fyfe at Fremantle.
 
“There’s a strong culture being built now since the acquisition of Ross Lyon and his coaching staff,” Fyfe said.
 
“That culture is really driven by the players – high accountability, high standards.
 
“It’s great to be a part of that building process and I really want to be a part of that going forward from here.”

General manager of player management Brad Lloyd said Fremantle was extremely pleased to re-sign the 2013 club champion.

“Nathan has become an integral part of our midfield group,” Lloyd said.

“He is a super competitor who has had a strong intent and focus to get the best out of himself from the day he arrived at the football club He is still only 22 years of age, so we look forward to his continued progression in the coming years."

Fyfe hails from Lake Grace, 345km southeast of Perth. He was drafted by Freo in the 2009 National Draft with pick 20 after playing his junior football at Aquinas College and Claremont.

He made his AFL debut in round 5, 2010, against Richmond at Patersons Stadium.

Fyfe enjoyed a breakout second season in 2011, finishing a runner-up to captain Matthew Pavlich in the Doig Medal before taking out the award in 2013.

A prodigious talent who has evolved into one of the most exciting and damaging midfielders in the game, Fyfe has now played 83 games and kicked 64 goals.
