Welch was recalled and with the Storm spending this week resting ahead of a preliminary final in Brisbane next Friday, Welch and the team confirmed he has extended his contract for the 2021 and 2022 seasons which will take his stint at the club to 10 years.
"I came here as a pretty skinny 18-year-old who didn't know much about footy and was searching for an opportunity," Welch said.
"It has been such an amazing journey to go on and the people who deserve the most thanks are my parents and my family for being so understanding and letting me pursue my dream away in Melbourne."
