Brad Singleton has signed a new deal with Leeds that will see him stay at the Rhinos until at least the end of the 2020 season.

The 25-year-old’s contract was due to be out of contract next season but he has now put pen to paper on a new two-and-a-half-year deal with the club.

Singleton played a starring role in Ireland’s World Cup campaign last year and has made nearly 150 appearances for the Rhinos.

On his new deal, Singleton said: “It was not a hard decision given the size of the club and how long I have been here.

“The club have always looked after me and my family, we are in a great position here as a family with my partner and I and our little one, with another on the way this summer.

“It was an easy decision for us and it is great to get it out of the way early so it does not become an issue moving forward.

“When I look around Emerald Headingley, it is hard to take in the size of the new stands and imagine what it will be like when it is finished. It is going to be up there with the top stadiums in the country and I can’t wait.”
