Eagles celebrate news Masten to stay with club until 2016

THE West Coast Eagles have received some good news at last.

After losing two more star players - Andrew Embley and Beau Waters - to injuries, the Eagles were finally celebrating some good news, with Chris Masten resigning for the club.

Masten, who was taken at pick three in the 2007 national draft as part of the deal which saw Chris Judd move to Carlton, extended his contract with the club until at least the end of the 2016 season.

"I'm really happy to have re-signed," Masten, 23, said.

"It's nice to get it sorted early in the season, I really enjoy being around the boys.

Masten had a career-high 39 possessions in the Eagles 94-point mauling of Melbourne at the MCG last Saturday.

He said he was delighted to be part of a team on the rise, adding: "This is an exciting time at the footy club and hopefully we can build on last week's win, particularly the second half.

"We really need to play four quarters of quality football.

"It'd be good to do it against Carlton this week."
