Rory Sloane will be a Crow for life after signing a five year deal to remain at the club.
Sloane, a much sought after Free Agent, resisted the urge to return to his home state of Victoria, deciding to remain a Crow for the rest of his AFL playing career.
The five-year deal will see the hard-nosed midfielder remain at West Lakes until at least the end of the 2023 season.
In a statement released from the club, Sloane said his love for the Adelaide Football Club and it's playing group was too hard to leave behind.
“This is a great footy club and I have said many times before how much I respect and love the place and people, particularly the playing group,” he said.
“There is always a lot to weigh up, especially given Belinda and I are about to start a family, and we have been in constant talks with the Club for some time.
“I’m super excited about what the future holds, both from a personal and football perspective.
“We have created a great environment where there is a genuine care for each other and strong desire to achieve the ultimate success.”
The 28-year-old has played 171 games for the Crows and won their Best and Fairest twice.
