Toumpas, a premiership player at just 17 years of age, returns to the Club after 6 years in the AFL system where he played 37 games for Melbourne and Port Adelaide. Jimmy, still just 24 years of age, will add plenty of class to the 2019 playing group.

On Jimmy’s signing CEO Luke Powell said “We are excited to have Jimmy, another Eagles junior product, return to our football club. Jimmy’s versatility will see him playing an important role through our midfield and defence that will complement our group. We see Jimmy as a great long-term player for us and a player who can provide great guidance and leadership to the playing list.

Jimmy, who has signed a two year deal said, “It’s great to be back at the Eagles my junior club and I can’t wait to get around my new teammates and play a role in our future success. It’s an exciting time with Sam as the new coach and I’m looking forward to getting things started.”

Jimmy will join teammates for the first night of preseason which will commence this Monday 26th November from 5:30pm at Eastern Parade Ottoway.
