Magpies fans have even more reason to celebrate this morning, with the club announcing Jordan De Goey has re-signed until at least the end of 2020.
With the Magpies currently sitting 2nd, it comes as a sign of faith from the midfielder that the club’s moving in the right direction.
De Goey was subject to a lot of interest from rival clubs, but ultimately chose to stay.
Speaking to collingwoodfc.com.au, De Goey says he’s flattered by the attention from other teams.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to remain at Collingwood and grateful to the people who have helped me find my way,” De Goey said.
“I’m happy to have a club and some fantastic people around me that I can rely on, trust and enjoy life with. And there is clearly something building at Collingwood that I want to share in.
“The interest from elsewhere was flattering and I hope I dealt with those enquiries respectfully.
“I’ll now continue to push to improve, to get the best out of myself and those around me.”
Great way to start a Sunday morning, Collingwood fans!
