Former Richmond player Matthew Dea has agreed to terms for the 2016 season.

The latest recruit means the Bombers have now officially secured four new players with Dea joining Ryan Crowley, James Kelly and Jonathan Simpkin in the red and black this year.

Dea played 31 games for Richmond after being picked up in the National Draft at the end of 2009.

The 24 year old spent most of his time at the Tigers playing as a rebounding defender.

He won Richmond’s VFL Best and Fairest last season, averaging 20 possessions and six marks per game.

The Club is permitted to sign up to ten new recruits to help cover the absence of the players affected by the Court of Arbitration for Sport’s ruling and has until March 15 to finalise all new signings.
