He said: “It’s great to have signed a new deal with the club, especially as it means so much to me and my family.
“The experience of making my debut in 2019 was something I’ll never forget, and now I am keen to hit the ground running for the new season once it is safe to do so.
“I’m looking forward to a big year in 2021, where my aim is to prove myself to the fans and show that I deserve a regular spot in the first team.
“Tim Sheens was a big reason behind me signing another deal here at Widnes, I’ve really enjoyed working with him since he arrived, and I am hoping to have a full season of playing under him to look forward to.”
