After a protracted round of negotiations, midfielder Paul Hasleby has agreed to a one-year contract extension with AFL club Fremantle.

Hasleby, 28, had wanted a new multi-year deal but the Dockers stood firm in offering him just one more season.

"Paul is an outstanding and decorated Fremantle player and we are delighted that he has committed to the club for season 2010," said Fremantle's player manager Brad Lloyd.

"After missing a year of football through injury, Paul played all 22 games in 2009 and we believe that he is capable of playing even better football next year."

The veteran of 188 games for the Dockers said he was already looking forward to next season.

"I'll be starting pre-season training in early November and I'm excited about playing my 11th season with Fremantle," he said.

"Along with all the senior players, I've really enjoyed working with our young playing group.

"There is a lot to like about the future of the Fremantle football club and I'm very keen to be a part of that."

The Dockers' two biggest stars, captain Matthew Pavlich and ruckman Aaron Sandilands, come out of contract at the end of next season.
