Fremantle midfielder Andrew Brayshaw has set his sights on premiership glory after penning a four-year contract extension with the Dockers.

Brayshaw is one of several bright, young starlets at the club and the future has plenty of potential under the leadership of second-year coach Justin Longmuir.

The 21-year-old's contract will take him through until the end of 2025 and he hopes the next step will be to play finals before going on to win the club's first ever flag.

"We have a really young group who have gelled together over the past couple of years and I think we’re heading in the right direction," Brayshaw told the club's website.

"It's exciting to see some of the young players stepping up. We've got some really good leadership and I think the club's in a good space at the moment with the (off-field) roles that we've filled over the last few years.

"If we can keep this group together and heading in the right direction for the next five years, it's really exciting about where we could get.

"I can see us pushing towards finals and, ultimately, winning a premiership. That's definitely my goal."

The Dockers know how important it is to keep the young group together and are delighted to have tied Brayshaw down to fresh terms.

"We've got a strong wave of young talent coming through and Andrew is integral to that," Fremantle list manager David Walls said.

"He's a key piece for us keeping that core group together and developing over the next few years."

The Dockers are priced at 50/1 to win the AFL grand final.
