Fremantle coach Ross Lyon has revealed Cale Hooker gave him a call on Tuesday night to inform him he wasn't going to join the Dockers.

Hooker has re-signed with Essendon for a further five AFL seasons, delivering a major blow to Fremantle's bid to fill their big-man holes in defence.

The Dockers are struggling at 0-5 heading into Saturday's clash with Adelaide, but Lyon insists he's the right man to rebuild the club.
