WESTERN Bulldogs vice-captain Daniel Giansiracusa has joined a long list of teammates by deciding to re-sign with the club.

Producing another outstanding season this year, Giansiracusa finished in the AFL's top ten for goals kicked and scoreboard impact at the end of the regular season.

The lively forward enjoyed a career-best 45 goals in a season where he also reached the impressive 200 game milestone.

Despite the Bulldogs finishing outside the top eight, Giansiracusa said he was excited to see what the future held for a club he holds dear to his heart.

"It was a slow start to the year with a few niggles… I found a way to get into some reasonable form including a patch there which was probably the best footy I played in my career," Giansiracusa said.

"I'm thrilled to have been given the opportunity to continue my career at a club I love and have spent the past 12 years at… I'm looking forward to seeing our group rebound next season and to see our great young talent continually improve.

"It's an exciting time."

Giansiracusa's signature will be added to a host of Bulldogs who have already re-committed to the club including Matthew Boyd, Daniel Cross, Easton Wood, Liam Picken, Tom Williams, Jarrad Grant, Jayden Schofield, Jason Tutt and father-son recruits Tom Liberatore and Mitch Wallis.
