Leeds director of rugby Kevin Sinfield said: "It is great news that James has agreed to sign a new deal with the club.

"When he first arrived at the Rhinos, he showed a great attitude and commitment to the club despite initially joining on trial.

"He has become a popular member of the squad and been a key experienced member of the group. I am looking forward to seeing him develop after a full off season at the club."
