Josh Kelly to re-sign with Giants: reports

AFL midfielder Josh Kelly is believed to have decided on re-signing with Greater Western Sydney despite interest from rival clubs.

In-demand AFL star Josh Kelly has reportedly agreed to re-sign with Greater Western Sydney, shunning big-money offers from rival clubs.

The 22-year-old midfielder has not yet re-signed but is close to inking a two-year deal contract extension, according to multiple media outlets.

But AAP understands the club is not poised to make an announcement on Thursday on Kelly's future.

The Victorian had been expected to extend his time at the Giants despite teams from his home state lining up to make bids.

He was reportedly offered a nine-year deal by North Melbourne worth $10 million, with the Giants' contract believed to be worth around $300,000 less per season.

It comes amid an impressive 2017 campaign for Kelly, rewarded with his maiden All-Australian selection after averaging 29.4 disposals a game for GWS.

The Giants celebrated another list management win on Wednesday when 2012 No.1 draft pick Lachie Whitfield re-signed until 2020.
