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.”
