Salford have tied down England Knights international prop Tyler Dupree to a new long-term deal which will see him stay at the club until at least 2025.

The 22-year-old prop arrived at the Red Devils in May having made the switch from Championship club Widnes.

Dupree went on to make 14 appearances for Salford in 2022, making his England Knights debut in the process.

Dupree said: “I’m over the moon to be extending my stay with a club who gave me the opportunity to fulfil my dream and play in Super League.

“It’s a great moment for me and my family, and hopefully many more years to come!”

Red Devils coach Paul Rowley said: “It’s great news to keep a young English forward within our club. His progression last year was fantastic and a credit to his attitude and work ethic.

“Myself and the group are really pleased he’s chosen to extend and look forward to helping him fulfil his goals whilst wearing the Salford badge.”

Salford’s director of rugby and operations Ian Blease added: “I’m so pleased to keep Tyler at our club for the next three years.

“He has been superb for us thus far and it has been very pleasing to see him develop his game since we signed him in May, playing so well for us all season and throughout the play-offs – culminating in Tyler grabbing his England Knights debut.

“Tyler can now work even harder and concentrate his efforts long term for the Red Devils. I’m very excited to see how he progresses next season and beyond. He has the talent and ability to take his career to the very highest levels of rugby league.”
