Star North Melbourne forward/midfielder Shannon Grant will retire at the end of this season.

The surprise announcement came ahead of his 300th game against Port Adelaide at the MCG on Saturday.

The 1999 premiership player and Norm Smith Medallist said he decided to quit because he was taking longer and longer to recover from the rigours of AFL football.

Kangaroos coach Dean Laidley said he had already spoken with Grant about a role for him at the club when he hangs up his boots.
