Veteran duo Zach Tuohy and Rhys Stanley have committed their futures to Geelong after penning contract extensions with the Cats.

The Cats will be looking to put their grand final disappointment behind them in the 2021 AFL campaign and are establishing a list to help them go one step further.

Gun forward Jeremy Cameron has just arrived from Greater Western Sydney to bolster the ranks, but keeping hold of key players is also a must.

Young gun Brandan Parfitt committed his future with a new deal on Monday and now Geelong have secured some experienced heads.

Tuohy had an impressive 2020 campaign, showing his versatility when playing in a variety of roles, and coach Chris Scott will be delighted to keep him on board.

The 31-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a two-year contract extension.

Stanley's season was interrupted by injury issues, but he still managed to play 10 games and showed how important he is to the side when fit.

The ruckman has signed a one-year contract extension and Geelong's general manager of football Simon Lloyd says both signings are a big boost for the club.

"Both Rhys and Zach have become key parts of our team over the years and we are pleased they will be continuing with us," Lloyd said.

"We believe they will help us to continue to challenge for finals and a premiership. Both are great around the club and influential in the community. They are proud to be Geelong players."

Coleman Medallist Tom Hawkins should be the next to commit with a new deal in the pipeline.

Geelong are priced at 11/2 to win the AFL grand final
