Fremantle captain Nat Fyfe has told 7 News Perth he's "pretty close" to signing a new deal with the Dockers , seemingly ending months of speculation Asked about his form this year , Fyfe said he's still to get back to his best.

"I can say that really genuinely. All the speculation floating around was mostly untrue, and it was quite interesting to watch.

"Fremantle is in a great position with their facilities and the ability to play in this new stadium (next year). There's no other place I'd want to play my footy."

Fyfe hopes to win a premiership with Fremantle before his deal expires.

And he is confident it can be achieved following the emergence of a host of talented players this season.

"I think we've got a group who are really willing to learn and aren't interested in waiting around for their careers to follow a natural trajectory," Fyfe said.

"Clearly, we want to deliver Fremantle their first premiership. It's a really lofty and ambitious goal. We're all going to work as hard as we can towards that."

With Fyfe now locked away, much of the focus of the AFL world will switch to out-of-contract Richmond star Dustin Martin.

Martin is a restricted free agent, and his hot form could be rewarded with offers upward of $1.3 million per season by rival clubs.
