Sydney Swans youngster Isaac Heeney says he never had any doubt about where he wanted his football future to be fresh from signing a new five-year contract extension.
Heeney has agreed to terms to remain in the red and white until the end of the 2022 season.
The 20-year-old said he was confident in the direction the Club was heading with such a young and talented list.
“It is extremely exciting, it is where I want to be and I have loved the last two years,” he said.
“To sign a five-year contract is special and it gives me that security to really focus on footy now.”
“It is an easy decision because I have loved the last two years and what the Swans have ahead is something extremely special within the group.”
“I am looking forward to the future that is for sure.”
Heeney grew up a passionate Swans support and was a member of the QBE Sydney Swans Academy.
“Everyone wants to be that one club player so if I can do that and have a good career with the Swans then I would love that,” he said.
“Running out alongside your teammates week in and week out especially at the SCG with a packed crowd is something that is extremely exciting for me.”
Heeney has strong plans for the 2017 season as he looks to push further up the ground into a more permanent midfield role.
“I am feeling extremely fit and strong at the moment so hopefully I can keep my body in good shape, stay injury free and hopefully crack into that midfield,” he said.
“If I want to be able to push into the midfield I need to have that solid fitness base to be able to run out a full game.”
“I have also been working on skills under fatigue which is something that everyone has to work on.”
