Don’t overlook the latest developments emerging from Port Adelaide.

In an assertive move, the exceptional midfielder Zak Butters from Port Adelaide has solidified his commitment to Alberton by officially penning a two-year extension.

While Butters was initially bound by contract until 2024, he has opted to elongate his tenure, marking the commencement of a pivotal phase in the re-signing strategy at Alberton.

At the age of 23, Butters has consistently elevated his performance season after season. His remarkable achievements include being acknowledged as the game’s most courageous player by his peers, securing the AFL Coaches Player of the Year award, and clinching the club’s best-and-fairest title in a truly magnificent campaign this year.

The extension secures Butters until the threshold of restricted free agency, presenting the possibility of commanding a substantial deal should his stellar form persist.

Attention now turns to Butters’ on-field comrade, Connor Rozee, as he becomes the next focal point for Port Adelaide’s list management team, given his contract expiration at the conclusion of 2024.

Expressing his thoughts on the new agreement, Butters stated, “I’ve got enormous confidence in where our young group is heading, and I’m settled in Adelaide, so, in the end, it was a pretty straightforward decision.”
