Carlton surprise-packet forward Levi Casboult has signed a new two-year deal, which will keep him at Visy Park until the end of 2014.
Blues president Stephen Kernahan revealed the encouraging news at the club's best and fairest.
Casboult, 22, emerged from obscurity to become a key marking target for the Blues in the latter part of the season.
Casboult, who was out of contract after his third season as a rookie, had to be given either a spot on the senior list or the Blues could have delisted him under the AFL rules governing rookie-listed players.
He has played only six senior games, but his presence in the team coincided with Carlton's late-season revival, with the Blues' often-suspect forward line showing potency when Casboult played alongside veteran tall forward Jarrad Waite.
He booted seven goals in his six games, including three against the Bombers in the round 21 victory.
