Leeds Rhinos centre Jimmy Keinhorst has committed his future to the Super League giants by signing a new three-year deal with the club.
The 23-year-old spent much of the last campaign on dual registration with Leeds and Hunslet Hawks, having played in the Challenge Cup final last year whilst still attending Leeds Metropolitan University.
Keinhorst has done enough to impress Rhinos head coach Brian McDermott and has now earned himself a new deal at Headingley ahead of the next Super League campaign.
McDermott has been pleased by the German international’s attitude both on and off the field and feels the centre fully deserves to get a new deal as he looks to push his way into a first-team spot.
He said: “We are delighted that Jimmy has agreed the new deal and I look forward to seeing him develop even further over the next three years.
“Securing Jimmy adds to the strength in our squad and that will be important next season.
“He showed great maturity last season to continue to work hard on his game whilst at Hunslet Hawks and earned a recall to the first team through his own commitment and attitude which bodes well for his future development.”
Leeds fell short of retaining their Super League crown last term after they suffered defeat to eventual winners Wigan Warriors in the play-off semi-finals.
As well as securing Keinhorst’s future, Leeds have also snapped up England star Tom Briscoe on a long-term deal from Hull FC in a bid to win silverware next season.
