Essendon have been given a boost with talented duo David Myers and Leroy Jetta signing two-year deals with the club.

Both players will remain at Windy Hill until at least the end of the 2014 season after agreeing to the new contracts.

Myers, who played nine games in a season plagued by calf and hamstring injuries, felt it was an easy decision to extend his stay with the club despite a torrid end to the year.

"I think it was evident from the first half of the season that we can play exciting football and are capable of matching it with the best teams," the 23-year-old said.

"We're willing to do whatever it takes to make this club successful and I feel that we are on the right track."

Jetta enjoyed another consistent season for the Bombers with 22 goals and a disposal efficiency of 74.8 percent.

"We're a close group and I want to be a part of this team because I think we can achieve great things together," Jetta said.

"Playing alongside my close mates Paddy Ryder, Alwyn Davey and Courtenay Dempsey made the decision to stay at the Bombers easy."

The duo's commitment to the club continues a positive off-season for the Bombers, who secured the services of restricted free agent Brendon Goddard on a four-year contract.
