IT'S finally official: Brent Prismall will use the Western Bulldogs' VFL affiliate as a platform to try to relaunch his AFL career.

The delisted Essendon midfielder visited Williamstown headquarters today to finalise his playing contract for 2013 and is set to start pre-season training in January.

Prismall, 26, trained at three clubs in the lead-up to the pre-season and rookie drafts but was overlooked by the Bombers, Dogs and Port Adelaide.

Last week he signed at the Dogs as their full-time player-welfare, a role vacated by Brett Goodes after he beat Prismall to the final place on Brendan McCartney's list.

"He still sees himself as someone who can get picked up in the future, so it was important for him to come into a good environment," Seagulls football manager Chris Dixon told SuperFooty today.

"Obviously it's a good fit with the role at the Western Bulldogs. But it's funny, when we first sat down with Brent he indicated he was looking to play for Williamstown regardless of what happened.

"He's going to be a very good player at VFL level and who knows, in 12 months you'd like to think the door is still open for him, especially with more mature-age players getting picked up."

Prismall played under McCartney at Geelong and Essendon during his 61-game AFL career.

Prismall lives in the western suburbs and came through the Western Jets in the TAC Cup.

He has battled knee and hamstring injuries throughout his career and was restricted to eight AFL matches this season, but last year Essendon coach James Hird backed him to recover.

"There's a lot of football left in Brent Prismall," Hird said after Prismall's knee setback last year.

He joins delisted Collingwood ruckman Cameron Wood as bumper signings at Williamstown, with both hopeful their AFL days are not over.
