Brett Ferres hoping for new deal at Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos forward Brett Ferres has admitted he’s not sure what his future holds just yet – but admits he would like to stay at the club in 2017 and beyond.

Ferres joined the Super League champions from Huddersfield on a one-year deal at the start of this season, but like most of the Rhinos squad, has found the going tough in 2016 as Leeds toil at the wrong end of the table.

However, he said that whilst it hasn’t been how he planned things to go on the field, he’s settled into life as a Leeds player well and would be open to a new contract with the club to secure his future at Headingley.

“I am not sure yet,” he told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“I signed a one-year contract and I have really enjoyed my time here.

“It has not been the ideal situation season-wise and it hasn’t gone to plan, but the club is fantastic.

“Everything about it has been first-class, the players have been great and the fans are fantastic here, they welcome you with open arms.

“It has been well received by myself, I am enjoying my time here and hopefully it can continue.”

Ferres is expected to be in the Leeds team tonight when they head to the KCOM Stadium to take on league leaders Hull FC.
