Widnes half-back Danny Craven has signed a new deal with the club until the end of 2021.

The 27-year-old has scored 46 tries in 129 appearances since making his debut for his hometown club in 2010. Craven is set to be granted a testimonial by the club in 2020.

He said: “I’m glad to get this deal over the line. I’ve been here a long time, and it was never really in my plans to leave this club.

“With myself, Jack [Owens] and Kieron [Purtill] committing for next year, it’s a good starting point now for us to build on.

“We know it’s going to be tough, but we’ve all got to come together as a club and as a town, and go through it as one.

“There’s no other club I’d rather play for than Widnes, so next year is exciting. We can start building for the future, getting plans and structures in place and hopefully get back to Super League one day.”
