FREMANTLE captain Nat Fyfe has signed the longest contract extension in the club's history, making him a Docker for life.

Fyfe has agreed to terms for a new six-year deal, which will keep him at the club until 2023.

"I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity. Freo has been my home since the start of my career and I've since grown into a leadership role," Fyfe said.

"I really love playing for the club and I'm really grateful and humbled to have the opportunity to be here for the next six years."

Fyfe says his ultimate goal is to lead the Dockers to their first AFL premiership, saying the playing group is "dog-hungry" to improve.

"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."
