Sam Mitchell to be an Eagle until at least 2020

SAM Mitchell has revealed he has signed a four-year deal with the West Coast Eagles.

The precise duration of Mitchell’s contract had not been specified, but the 34-year-old said in an interview with Melbourne radio station 3AW that he would be with the Eagles until 2020.

How long he will spend as a player, however, is open to discussion.

“I’ve signed a contract with West Coast for four years,” Mitchell said.

“However that ends up with playing and coaching, who knows?

“I might hurt myself tomorrow and it’ll be four years of coaching or I might play for three years and do one year of coaching.”

“I’m pretty open to all those things.

“I’m sure we’ll get to round 18 or round 20 and whether I play or coach next year will be on the table to discuss then behind closed doors.”
