Gold Coast defender Rory Thompson has re-signed with the club until the end of 2019.

The 25-year old has played 79 games since debuting in 2011, and told the Suns website that he's keen to stick around.

“Obviously I’m very excited to be staying at home on the Gold Coast. I was born and bred here and looking forward knowing I’m going to be here for a few more years,” Thompson said.

“I love the lifestyle here. I’m into my surfing, fishing, golf and all that sort of stuff out in the sun and I’m very excited where the club’s at as well. The future’s looking pretty bright up here and I think it was a good time to re-sign.

“We made some key signings in the trade period in Pearce Hanley, Jarryd Lyons and Jarrod Witts. They can all come in and play a role and have an immediate impact for us."
