Australia star Josh Mansour has signed a new three-year deal with Penrith Panthers.

The 27-year-old will stay at the Panthers Stadium until at least the end of the 2021 season.

Mansour has scored 55 tries in 108 appearances for the Panthers and was named Dally M Winger of the Year in 2016.

The Australia and New South Wales representative is over the moon to extend his stay with the club.

He said: “I’m extremely grateful and excited to have committed my future to Panthers.

“This club has given me everything and shaped me into the person I am today, on and off the field.

“While I had to consider my options, my overwhelming desire was to stay at Panthers as my heart has always been with this club.

“I feel I’ve still got unfinished business here and I can’t wait to serve the club for another three years.”

Penrith executive general manager Phil Gould is a huge fan of Mansour and is glad to see him remain at the Panthers.

He said: “I want Josh Mansour to be a part of Panthers for the rest of his life.

“I can give him no greater accolade. His contributions both on and off the field have been nothing short of outstanding.”
