TOUK Miller has signed a new contract with the Gold Coast Suns as he remains in the mix to take over the captaincy at the AFL club.
He inked a three-year extension on Thursday, keeping him on the Gold Coast until at least the end of the 2022 season.
With Tom Lynch and Steven May departing during last year’s trade period, Miller is considered one of the leading candidates to become the Sun’s newest skipper.

David Swallow and Jarrod Witts, who just signed new long term deals of their own, are also in the mix.
Miller admitted he was excited by the path that the club was on.
“I think we have all the right people and I had no hesitation in committing to the playing group and the program that the club has put in place,” Miller said.
“We’ve got a group of boys that are really tight and that’s definitely an environment I want to be around.”
“As a group we want to be playing strong consistent football and I think that everything the Gold Coast offers, gives us the perfect opportunity to do that.”
“The pre-season so far has been challenging, but it’s what we should expect, as a group we feel really well prepared for the AFL Season.”
“There has been significant change at the club, but our members and fans should be really excited by the level of commitment everyone is showing to help drive this club forward.” Miller said.
