Isaah Yeo signs new Penrith Panthers deal

Isaah Yeo returns for the Panthers

Penrith Panthers co-captain Isaah Yeo has signed a new deal with the club until at least the end of 2024.

The 26-year-old was recently appointed co-captain of the Panthers alongside Nathan Cleary. Yeo has only ever played for Penrith, making 148 appearances since his first team debut in 2014. He made his Origin debut for New South Wales in 2020.

Yeo said: “I had no intentions of doing anything other than re-signing with Panthers.

“I love playing for this club. I really couldn’t see myself in another jersey.

“If anyone asked me when I first came to Penrith if I would play first grade, I would have said they were crazy.

“To think I’m here now and this deal is going to take me through to the age of 30 is incredible. It’s been quite a journey and something I’m very proud of.

“Hopefully over the next few years we can bring a premiership to Penrith and I can play my part in that.”

Panthers coach Ivan Cleary said: “Everyone at the club is stoked to get this deal done.

“I think Isaah is hitting the sweet spot of his career. His performances last year and his Origin debut have solidified his self-belief, which was already strong, but has gone to another level.

“He’s going to be a really important player for our club over the next four years.”
