Widnes Vikings centre Chris Dean has signed a new two-year deal with the club.
The 28 year-old has featured in all but one of the Vikings’ 10 Super League games so far this season and scored his only try of the campaign in February’s win away at Huddersfield.
Dean permanently joined the Vikings from St Helens in 2013 following loan spells in 2008 and 2011; and has made 113 Super League appearances for Widnes.
“I would like to thank
s Denis Betts and James Rule for the opportunity to further extend my Vikings career,” Dean told the club’s official website.
“I have been with the Club for nearly five years now and I am proud to have been part of the teams growth on and off the field.
“I am really enjoying playing here at the Vikings and can’t wait to see where the next two years take us as I feel it will be someplace special.”
Head coach Denis Betts added: “Retaining a player like Chris is fantastic for the Club.
“From day one he has applied himself both on and off the pitch and has always given everything out on the field.
“Chris is the type of player that all great clubs are built on, to secure a player of his quality will only add to the strength of the team.”
