Salford Red Devils prop James Greenwood has signed a two-year contract extension, with the option of a third.
Greenwood joined the club permanently in 2020 having spent a short loan spell at Salford in 2015, and helped the Red Devils reach their first Challenge Cup Final since 1969 last season, scoring a try at Wembley.
Speaking on his contract extension, Greenwood said: “It was a simple decision for me to extend my stay, I’ve really enjoyed my time so far at Salford.
“I’m focused on doing my part for the team and giving it 100% for the fans every game. I’m looking forward to the next few seasons as we all look to push on and improve from this year.”
Salford Red Devils head coach Richard Marshall said: “James has been a pleasure to work with this year. It’s been no coincidence that the games we’ve played well in this season have involved James.
“I think he can further develop next year in what will be an exciting and fit pack. He could well be the cornerstone of that group after a good preseason and further emerge as a leader down the line.”
Director of Rugby and Operations, Ian Blease, said: “I’m delighted that Greeny has extended his stay here at Salford, he’s a brilliant individual and a quality player.
“I know he’s had a bit of bad luck this season with his injuries, but he’s been working hard off the field and with a good preseason, he’ll be back in top form in 2022.”
