Parramatta superstar Jarryd Hayne has pledged his future to the Eels until the end of 2015 after signing a new deal.
Full-back Hayne’s current deal was due to expire at the end of next season but Eels bosses have been keen to stave off interest from a number of other clubs including western Sydney rivals Penrith.
Local junior Hayne, 25, who made his club debt as an 18-year-old in 2006, has since played 143 matches for Parramatta.
In 2009 he was awarded the Dally M Medal.
In a statement released by the Eels on Wednesday, a club spokesman said. “We are thrilled our recently appointed co-captain has extended his contract with us for another two seasons, and are excited he will be a part of our new beginning at Parramatta.”
