GWS co-captain Phil Davis has inked a new deal to remain at the Giants.

The 27-year-old, who was not due to come out of contract until the end of the season, has signed for a further three years.

He is no contracted until the end of 2021.

Davis, who crossed from the Bulldogs to the Giants ahead of their inaugural season, said he's happy in Sydney.

"It's an exciting time for me and also a great time to be part of the footy club," he said.

"It was a very easy decision, I really didn't have to put too much thought into it and it was a pretty quick process in the end.

"It's been a great journey so far and hopefully there's a fair few years left. I'm looking forward to the next four years if you include this year."

Davis is the second high-profile Giant to re-sign with the club in recent weeks, joining All-Australian forward Toby Greene.

"We had no doubt Phil would extend his contract but it's always a great day when you sign your co-captain up," GWS list boss Jason McCartney said.

"Phil is an exemplary leader of this club and we wouldn't be in the position we are today without him.

"On-field he's coming off two really consistent seasons where he's been able to show the competition why we've always regarded him as one of the best defenders in the game."

GWS academy graduate and young gun Isaac Cumming has also signed until the end of 2020.

He is expected to push for his senior debut this season and at times fill the void left by the injured Zac Williams across halfback.

"I loved my first year at the club, settling into Sydney and getting to explore the city," Cumming said.

"I've had a really good pre-season and am just excited to get out there playing games again and push for a shot in the AFL side".
