Fouad Yaha has signed a new two-year deal with Catalans Dragons.

The new deal will see the France international winger remain at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium until the end of the 2024 season.

Yaha, 25, came through the club’s academy, having joined them in 2015. He made his Super League debut in a 32-24 victory over Hull KR in 2015. At 18-years-old, he came the youngest player at the time to have played for the Dragons in Super League.

He was a member of the team that lifted the 2018 Challenge Cup trophy with a victory over Warrington at Wembley Stadium.

He joined Top 14 rugby union side SU Agen in 2018, before returning to Catalans in February 2019.

Yaha became the club’s all-time leading try scorer earlier this season against Warrington in a 40-8 victory. He has scored 89 tries in 138 appearances for the Dragons.

On his new deal, Yaha said: “I’m very happy to stay at the Dragons.

“I feel really good here and I enjoy every day with this team.

“We have a strong squad and I’m proud to be part of it. It’s an honour to be the new club best try scorer and I’m looking forward to help the club to achieve success.”

Head coach Steve McNamara added: “Fouad is a hugely popular member of the team. We are happy he has agreed a new deal.

“He has a drive and ambition to continually look to improve his game and we look forward to working with him to enable that to happen.”
