The 30-year-old hard-running midfielder has had a stop-start career since joining the Eagles from Brisbane in 2015. Redden was cursed with a groin injury early on and found it hard to break into the Eagles midfield managing just 15 games in his first year.

It wasn’t until late in 2017 when Redden started to find his form, playing every game in 2018 helping the Eagles win the premiership, racking up an amazing 628 disposals during the season. 

Redden also won the Player of the Finals Award and finished as a runner up in the 2018 John Worsfold medal race. He continued his form in 2019, taking a more defensive role behind  Elliot Yeo, Luke Shuey, Dom Sheed, making 129 tackles throughout the season.

The arrival of Tim Kelly in 2020 saw him take a back seat in the side, playing just 13 games while also suffering a fractured thumb that also saw him miss out a series of games.

Redden is contracted until the end of the 2021 season but we’re sure the Eagles will offer the pacey midfielder a new contract, with the player likely to end his career in Western Australia.
