Western Bulldogs ruckman Will Minson will remain at the club until at least the end of 2016 after agreeing to a new deal.

Minson had an excellent 2013 season, garnering All-Australian selection and a top three placing in the club's best and fairest award.

In a statement on the club's website, List Manager Jason McCartney said Minson had worked extremely hard to improve his game and the contract extension was just reward for that effort.

“Will has set a great example to our younger players in the way he conducts himself around the club and has shown that he is an extremely valuable member of our team,” McCartney said.

“We've seen how hard he has worked over the years to get better, and are thrilled he is producing the type of football we know he's capable of.”

The 28-year-old has played 158 games since being selected at 20 in the 2002 National Draft.
