WANGARATTA football star Alipate Carlile looks set to finish his AFL career as a one club player after signing a new long-term deal with Port Adelaide earlier this week.
While he may only be 25 years old, Carlile has signed a four-year contract extension meaning he will remain with the Power until the end of the 2017 season.
The Power confirmed the deal on Monday afternoon with fellow key defender Jackson Trengove as well as young pair Andrew Moore and John Butcher also inking new deals.
Carlile has played 111 games for Port Adelaide since his debut back in 2006 and is the most senior of the club’s defenders.
But despite the introduction of free-agency, Carlile dismissed any notion that loyalty was dead in football by committing his future to the Power.
“I owe this club everything,” Carlile said.
“They’ve supported me since day one and I just want to be able to repay that over the next four years.
