Adelaide onballer Brad Crouch has ended the speculation about his future, signing a four-year contract extension and spurning interest from interstate clubs.

The 22-year-old Victorian had been linked to several Melbourne-based clubs, including reigning premier Hawthorn, but instead signed a new deal with the Crows believed to be worth about $2.2 million.

“Brad’s attack on the footy is something that we really value, along with his ability to win the ball inside and outside the contest,” Crows coach Don Pyke said.

Crouch has battled a spate of injuries since finishing as runner-up in the 2013 Rising Star – including missing all of last season with foot problems.

But having built up his fitness in the SANFL, he has established his place in the senior side with standout performances in recent weeks.

“I’m stoked to continue my career as a Crow and it’s a credit to my manager Alex McDonald and the Club for getting the deal done,” Crouch said in a statement.

“It’s a great environment to be around with all the playing group… there’s plenty of hard work ahead but I think team success isn’t too far away.”

His brother Matt last year signed a new three-year deal to stay at the club.
