The Rabbitohs have also confirmed that David Tyrrell has extended his deal to the end of the 2017 season.
“I’m really excited about signing on for another year with the Rabbitohs,” he said.
“I’m really enjoying my time with the club, we’ve got a great set of lads here, and in the end the decision to stay is what I think is best for my career.
“I want to create more memories at this club and I’m really looking forward to what’s ahead, starting with the game against the Cowboys this Monday night.”
Souths coach Michael Maguire was also pleased that Burgess had committed his future to the Rabbitohs.
He said: “Tom is improving in his game every week and is proving to be a valuable member of our forward rotation in the middle of the field.”
