Nat Fyfe re-signs with Dockers until 2025

Nat Fyfe's sights are firmly set on helping Fremantle win their maiden premiership after spurning free agency to re-sign with the AFL club for a further two years.

Fyfe was due to come out of contract at the end of this season, and his uncertain future was becoming a big talking point given his injury struggles, change in role, and the loss of the captaincy.

The two-time Brownlow medallist was slated to spend this season as a permanent forward, but he has managed to play a hybrid midfield/forward role since returning from a foot injury.

The 31-year-old looms as a key cog in Fremantle's premiership push, and insists the thought of leaving the Dockers was never a serious consideration.

"I was never going to play footy anywhere else," said Fyfe, who is now locked in until 2025.

"It's been an interesting previous contract for me, where we basically went through a complete list turnover and rebuild.

"I haven't played finals since 2015 and I feel there's been a lot of investment into the club and the club has invested in me.

"I like to play long games, I like payoffs in the end and I'm really hopeful that at the end of this there's a really good story."

That payoff is a shiny premiership cup.

Fyfe, who missed Fremantle's finals campaign last year due to injury, was part of the Dockers' losing grand final side in 2013.

The star veteran craves team success, and he will do everything within his powers to achieve it.

"It's every club's goal, to try and win a premiership and for us to be part of the first premiership adds a little bit extra, I think," Fyfe said.

"The last two years has been pretty challenging for me, but I feel the support from the fans has only grown for me and for the club.

"I would never have played footy anywhere else other than here and I'm hopeful (the fans) can be part of a pretty special couple of years coming up for our club."

Fremantle have won four games on the trot to shoot back into premiership calculations.

Their wins over the Swans in Sydney, Geelong in Perth and Melbourne at the MCG has showcased their potential to battle for the flag.

Fyfe's role is growing by the week now that he can play out full games again.

"It's been a progressive build, playing a quarter, a half, three quarters and a full game. It's a luxury we can do that with modern footy," said Fyfe, who battled a plantar fasciitis injury earlier this season.

"Everything feels really good and I'll be on track to play again against Richmond next week.

"I feel like I've got to catch up to speed and build some form and confidence in my roles, because I'm playing a midfield/forward mix."

Drafted at No.20 in 2009, the 2025 season will mark Fyfe's 16th season at the club, where he is currently the most-experienced player on the list with 214 games.

As well as his Brownlow Medal wins in 2015 and 2019, Fyfe is a three-time All Australian, three-time Doig Medal winner and two-time AFLPA MVP winner.
