Giants duo to sign new deals

Huddersfield duo Aaron Murphy and Dale Ferguson will sign new deals with the club.

League Express can reveal the pair have agreed to pen fresh contracts that will keep them at the John Smith’s Stadium beyond the end of the season.

Both players were out of contract at the end of the year but have agreed to stay with the Giants before testing the waters in the open market.

Murphy was recently ruled out for several weeks with a torn adductor, but has been Huddersfield’s most consistent performer in a tough campaign.

The 29-year-old has been with the West Yorkshire club since 2012 and gone on to make 155 appearances in claret and gold.

Meanwhile, Ferguson is currently in his second spell with the club having returned from a stint with Bradford Bulls last year.

Ferguson, who like Murphy was part of the Giants’ 2013 League Leaders’ Shield side, played for Scotland in the 2017 World Cup and has made eight appearances this season.
