Gold Coast midfielder Touk Miller has committed his future to the Suns by signing a three-year contract extension.

The new deal ties Miller to the expansion club until at least the end of 2022.

Following the departures of Tom Lynch and Steven May, the 22-year-old is looming as the favourite to become Gold Coast’s new captain for the 2019 season.

Miller says he never considered leaving the Suns and that the club is heading in the right direction.

“I couldn’t be happier to sign and lock in my future with the Suns,” Miller told Gold Coast's official website.

“Gold Coast is home and I’m stoked to be able to continue my career at the club.

“I think we have all the right people and I had no hesitation in committing to the playing group and the program that the club has put in place.”

Miller played all 22 games for the Suns in 2018, leading the club for disposals and tackles in a tumultuous year for Stuart Dew's side.

Taken with pick No. 29 in the 2014 draft, Miller has played 82 games for Suns, emerging as one of the club’s most consistent performers.
