Dustin Martin agrees to mammoth new deal

After months of intense speculation, Dustin Martin has finally confirmed which club he will be playing for in 2018.

The Richmond star has agreed to stay a Tiger for life, signing a new seven-year deal on Thursday.

“We are absolutely delighted that Dustin has committed to a long-term deal with the Club,” Richmond general manager – football talent Dan Richardson said.


“As we have said consistently, in the modern football landscape players and their management are entitled to explore their options. Our fans will be thrilled that after undertaking that process, Dustin has decided he wants to be at Richmond Football Club and a part of our future.

“Despite the constant media speculation, negotiations have always been conducted with transparency and in good faith.

“Dustin has played some outstanding football this season. His focus has always been on the team and that will again be the case as we head into the finals’ series.”

Martin, who last night became a two-time All Australian, has played 175 games and kicked 182 goals during his eight-year career.
