Jong has played 64 AFL games since making his debut in the opening round of 2012.

He featured three times at senior level in 2020, before sustaining an ankle injury in round five which ended his season.

“I’m grateful to the club for the opportunity and keeping the faith in me, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else,” Jong said.

“To play on into a 10th year is pretty special. I never expected to make it this far when I first started playing.

“I feel like when I’m up and going that I’m part of our best 22 and can make a contribution to our team. I know I’ve got plenty of good footy ahead of me.”

General Manager of List and Recruiting, Sam Power, said Jong remains an important part of the Bulldogs’ plans.

“Lin has had some unfortunate luck with injuries in recent years, but we know he is a player capable of making an impact at AFL level,” Power said.

“We saw this again in the early stages of 2020, before his ankle setback. 

“We know if he can get his body right and have a good run at it, he can be a regular senior player for us in 2021.”
