Emerging key forward Logan McDonald has inked a two-year contract extension, committing to the Sydney Swans until at least the end of the 2024 season.
Selected by Sydney with the No.4 draft pick in 2020, McDonald was one of three Swans to make their AFL debut in Round 1, 2021 against the Lions.
Since then, the 19-year-old has kicked nine goals from eight appearances in the red and white.
McDonald said he’s thrilled to recommit to the club.
“The Sydney Swans is the only place I ever wanted to be. This is a great club, and I am grateful to be able to commit for another couple of years,” he said.
Originally from Western Australia, McDonald admits it was initially a little daunting moving his life across the country at a young age, but he says the transition was made easy thanks to the Swans’ culture.
“Ever since I walked through the doors, I’ve loved every minute of it,” McDonald said.
“The team is such a close-knit group here. I’ve come from Perth not really knowing anyone in Sydney, but I’ve built a close bond with a lot of the younger boys and I’ve loved every minute of it.
“It’s great to come into this club every day, in this beautiful city, with my best mates and get to work. I think we’re building something really special here. This young group is really driven and motivated and I’m really excited to see where we can take it.”
Sydney Swans Executive General Manager – Football, Charlie Gardiner says McDonald is an exciting talent and key part of the club’s future.
“We’re delighted Logan has recommitted to the club,” Gardiner said.
“Logan is clearly an exciting talent and has shown the potential to perform at the top level, but it is his work ethic and drive to improve that has impressed us the most. He is a terrific young man with a great attitude, so we know he is going to do everything possible to get the best out of himself and his teammates.
“He has made an excellent start to his AFL career and we’re confident he has a bright future as part of our young forward group.”
