Widnes Vikings forward Chris Dean has signed a new two year deal to remain at the club.
Dean joined the club when they achieved Super League promotion in 2012 and will remain at the club until at least 2020 with his new deal.
The 30 year old said “I have seen first-hand how positively the club has changed on and off the field. It made it an easy decision to sign the new contract.”
His coach Denis Betts added: “Its a huge boost for everyone at the club to have Chris for two more years.”
