Aussie Rules: Dunkley a happy Bulldog

Josh Dunkley has spoken of how happy he is with the Western Bulldogs and dropped a big hint he could be about to pledge his long-term future.

The Bulldogs are priced at 6/1 to win the 2022 premiership after losing last season's grand final and Dunkley will again have a key role to play.

Out of contract

Dunkley will be out of contract at the end of the year and after he requested a move to Essendon two years ago, there has to be a question mark over whether or not he will re-sign with the Bulldogs.

The move to the Bombers failed to go through and Dunkley was known to be very disappointed at the time. But a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then and he is much happier.

So much so, he dropped a big hint he would be ready to sign up again if a deal that suits everyone can be hammered out.

"I think it’s obvious. You watch me out here and around the footy club; everyone’s really embraced me and it’s been really positive," Dunkley said. "I’m just happy. I was always happy – it was never an issue with that – but it’s probably more just the way that I’ve been around the footy club and they’ve really embraced me.

"(That is) the main thing and I feel a part of it, which is good."

Treloar friendship

The fact that he has struck up a great friendship with Adam Treloar has also helped and could be another reason to pen a new contract.

"Adzy has been really good for me," he added. "With the way things happened last year, and to be all together now; everything happens for a reason, I’m a big believer in that."
