BULL Creek-Leeming prod­uct Jar­rad Jansen will rep­re­sent East Fre­man­tle in the WAFL next year after four years in the AFL.

The 192cm big-bod­ied mid­fielder and half for­ward re­turns to Shark Park after two years at Gee­long and a two-year stint with the Bris­bane Lions.

Jansen pro­gressed through East Fre­man­tle’s devel­op­ment pro­gram be­fore his colts de­but in 2012.

Gee­long picked him up with se­lec­tion 36 in the 2013 na­tional draft but he was traded to the Lions after strug­gling to crack the Cats’ best 22.

He made his AFL de­but in round 11 of the 2016 sea­son and went on to play eight games.

The 23-year-old was also part of Bris­bane’s 2017 NEAFL pre­mier­ship side, col­lect­ing 25 dis­pos­als as the Lions beat Sydney by three points.
