Leeds stand-off Danny McGuire has signed a new contract that will keep him at Headingley at least until the end of the 2015 campaign.

The 29-year-old England international's current deal was due to expire at the end of next season.

McGuire made his first-team debut for the Rhinos in July 2001 and has just started his testimonial year with the club.

He has won six Grand Finals with Leeds and is the leading try scorer in the Super League era with 201 touchdowns to his name.

McGuire told the club's official website: "I am really pleased to get the contract agreed and signed before the start of pre-season.

"Danny is a unique talent and we are very privileged to have him play his entire career at Leeds Rhinos."
Brian McDermott

"I can now fully focus on getting myself in the best possible shape for a massive season for the Rhinos and myself, with it being my testimonial year. I am feeling great at present, having had some time off at the end of the season, and I am raring to go for the start of pre-season training on Monday.

"We have got a massive year with the World Club Challenge against Melbourne at Headingley Carnegie first up and we all know that we need a big pre-season to get ready for that challenge."

Rhinos coach Brian McDermott said: "Danny is a unique talent and we are very privileged to have him play his entire career at Leeds Rhinos.

"We all have been guilty over the years of perhaps taking him for granted in terms of what he does for this team because he performs at such a high level every time he steps onto the field.

"However, his value to this team is never underestimated and I am delighted he has agreed a contract extension."
