We are delighted to announce Deon Cross has signed a new two-year deal at Salford Red Devils, with the option to extend by a further year.
The 27-year-old has been an outstanding addition since joining the club from Widnes Vikings at the start of 2022.
Arriving as a natural winger, but now thriving at centre, Cross has continued his rapid development under the tutelage of Paul Rowley and the rest of the coaching team.
In his debut season, Cross scored 14 tries in 29 games and earned a call-up to the England Knights squad – making his debut against Scotland in a 28-4 victory.
There’s no doubt – with this long-term extension – Cross will continue to be an important member of the team for years and years to come.
In reaction to extending his stay at the club, Cross said: “I’m really pleased to extend my contract at Salford.
“The club have given me this opportunity and I want to repay them with my performances and help achieve the goals that we have set as a team!”
Head Coach, Paul Rowley has added: “Myself and the group are delighted that Deon has extended his contract.
“He has had an incredible journey in rugby league and we look forward to being a part of it going forward – and helping him continue his remarkable progression.”
Director of Rugby & Operations, Ian Blease has also said: “It has been a real pleasure to see Deon’s development at Salford Red Devils.
“He is a player who embodies dedication and hard work. To see how he prepares for a game leaves me with no surprise when he performs to a high standard on the weekend.
“I am delighted we have been able to retain his services for the next few years. Deon is a first-class person and to see him pull on an England Knights jersey last year was a very proud moment for everyone at the club.
“I would like to congratulate Deon on his new contract and look forward to seeing him progress even further in 2024!”
