North Melbourne expects Dustin Martin to turn down its offer and sign a new deal at Richmond
DUSTIN Martin has agreed to terms with Richmond and will remain a Tiger for the next seven years, declining a massive North Melbourne offer.
Sources have confirmed that Martin has agreed to stay at Punt Road, signing a deal worth an estimated $1.2m to $1.3m a season — still well short of the massive seven-year $10.5m offer put to Martin by the Kangaroos.
North had been bracing itself for the news that Martin had declined its offer to stick with Richmond.
The Tigers were tight-lipped about Martin on Thursday, but a source indicated that it was “moving in that direction” of the star Tiger re-signing.
