Manly star Kieran Foran will remain with the club for a further three years, after signing a new deal.
Foran rejected a lucrative offer from former coach Des Hasler to join Canterbury to instead remain at Brookvale until the end of 2015.
“This has been the toughest decision of my life, but I love playing with my mates and playing with a club that has such a great culture and strong values,” Foran told the club’s website.
“I’d like to thank everyone for their patience during this process.”
Coach Geoff Toovey was gushing about Foran’s talents.
“Kieran has a fantastic future at this great club,” he said.
“Despite enormous outside pressure, he’s handled this process very professionally and it’s a great reflection of the club’s spirit, culture and camaraderie that he has decided to stay.”
