Declan Patton signs Warrington contract extension

Warrington Wolves half-back Declan Patton has signed a new two-year contract with the club, keeping him at the Halliwell Jones Stadium until 2020.

Patton’s future at Warrington has been in doubt with a number of clubs interested in his services but the rumours have now been put to bed.

The news completes a successful couple of days for Warrington, following the signing of South Sydney Rabbitohs forward Jason Clark for next year.

Patton told the Warrington club website: “I love being here at Warrington,”

“I’ve played my whole career here so it’s something I didn’t want to let go of.

“It’s taken a while but I’m really glad to have signed now.

“It gives me a bit of an extra buzz because I’m from the town too.

“I grew up playing for the club and watching from the stands as a youngster.

“It means a lot to play here and I’m made up to have signed for another two years. The hope of winning some silverware was a big reason for staying.”

Wolves boss Steve Price added: “I’ve been really pleased with Declan’s attitude and contribution to the team,”

“He’s playing a really important part.

“I understand he’d like more game time but winning teams are all about team first and that’s what breeds success.

“He is playing a solid part in and around our team at the moment.”
