On the back of being one of the most consistent players at the Newcastle Knights in 2021, Jayden Brailey has signed a new deal.
Brailey was already contracted for 2022 and made the decision to extend his deal to the end of 2025, a further three seasons.
“It’s a massive honour for me to extend here at the Club and I’m really excited to see what the next couple of years will bring,” Brailey said.
“I feel like I’ve played my best football here, which is a credit to the staff and players around me.”
Brailey is grateful to the club for the faith they have shown in him and he wants to repay them.
“I’m really grateful to the Club for having me on until 2025 and I’d love to repay their faith with some success on the field,” Brailey continued.
Brailey’s form, consistency, and charismatic nature saw him given an opportunity to captain the Knights earlier this season.
As the Knights look to build some consistency in the years to come, club General Manager Danny Buderus says Brailey’s re-signing was crucial.
“This contract comes at a sweet spot in Jayden’s career which will benefit the Club greatly over the next four years,” Buderus said.
“Taking control of the team as one of our senior leaders has seen him grow both on and off the field in just his fifth year of first grade and first as captain.
“The way he handled the disappointment of his injury has set a new standard for rehab and professionalism within the Club as a whole.”
