Brisbane Lions midfielder Deven Robertson has signed a new two-year deal to remain at Brighton Homes Arena until at least the end of the 2025 season.

The 22-year-old re-committed to the Lions despite interest from rival Clubs, including a potential return home to Western Australia.

Robertson, the Lions first pick in the 2019 NAB AFL Draft with selection 22, played 13 home and away games for Brisbane this season before lining up in all three finals - including last week’s Grand Final.

Lions List Manager, Dom Ambrogio, said the Club was rapt to have Robertson staying in Brisbane.

“It great to have Dev re-sign with us and it is again a credit to the Club to be a place players want to come to and want to stay at,” he said.

“Dev is an exciting young talent who we believe will be a key part of our future and he showed this season that he is continuing to develop.

“We look forward to seeing what Dev can achieve in the next two years and the role we see him playing in the future success of the Brisbane Lions.”

Robertson, who captained Western Australia in the Under-18 Championships and won the Larke Medal as the best player in the series in 2019, said he is thrilled to remain a Lion.

Fresh off his 13 disposals, three marks and one goal in the Grand Final, the young midfielder explained his reasons for staying with the Club and what he hopes to achieve in the next two years.

“We have such a special group and I want to be a part of what we are building towards,” Roberston said.

“For me personally I feel like I am developing as a player who can contribute consistently, and I want to keep working hard to become the best player I can be.

“I love the people at the Club and the drive that everyone has to succeed and no doubt over the next two years myself along with all other staff and players will be striving to win a premiership.

Robertson’s signing follows on from teammates Conor McKenna, Darcy Wilmot and Kai Lohmann who all recently put pen to paper to stay at the Brisbane Lions.
