Rookie Nic Newman's outstanding NEAFL season has earned him a new two-year deal with the Sydney Swans and a spot on the club's senior list from 2017.

"It's fair to say we put it to Nic this year and said, 'It's really important for you to make sure you have a really strong off-season and give yourself the best opportunity'. And he did that."
