Lance Franklin is going around again with the Swans.
Just days after qualifying for the grand final, Sydney fans have received another massive boost with news the superstar key forward has put pen to paper on a one-year contract extension.
Buddy is coming to the end of his nine-year, $10 million contract with Sydney and has been the subject of significant speculation regarding his future.
It was reported earlier in the season that the 35-year-old was considering continuing his career elsewhere after the Swans’ one-year offer fell short of his expectations.
Franklin released a statement to announce contract talks would be put on the backburner as he chases an as-yet elusive premiership with Sydney.
The parties quietly came to an agreement and, in an homage to Michael Jordan’s iconic press release, the Swans confirmed a one-year deal for Franklin.
