Mundy opens contract discussions with Fremantle

Dockers veteran David Mundy has opened contract talks to extend his stay at Fremantle into a 15th season.
Fitness and form permitting, a deal would see Mundy (290 games) become just the second player from a Western Australian club to reach the 300-game milestone, after former teammate Matthew Pavlich.
Mundy’s manager, Anthony McConville, said discussions have been productive.
“We’re in conversations with Freo at the moment about David playing on next year,” McConville told AFL.com.au.
“David is keen to play on and his form this year suggests he’s still capable of doing that at a high level.
“Our talks with Fremantle have been positive, so things look promising for David to continue for another season.”
Mundy has played predominantly forward and provided support to developing talls Brennan Cox and Cam McCarthy.
In the absence of Nat Fyfe, the 32-year-old - who turns 33 on Monday - has returned to the midfield and played a crucial role in upsetting finals-bound Port Adelaide on Sunday.
Earlier this month, Mundy said he was weighing up life after football but leaning towards seeking a new deal.
“I certainly feel like physically, my output is still at a high level, and I feel like I’m positively contributing to the team each week,” he said.
“Mentally, I feel really engaged and really strong in my desire to get the Fremantle Football Club on a successful path.
“In terms of a football sense, I’ve still got a lot to do, I feel.”
Mundy has averaged 22 possessions (10.5 contested), 3.6 clearances and kicked 14 goals in 16 games this year.
