The Dyldam Parramatta Eels have today announced Kieran Foran has agreed to terms with the club for the next four years.
The 24 year-old international, who has played 19 Tests for New Zealand, will leave the Sea Eagles at the end of the 2015 season to join the Blue and Gold from 2016.
“Today’s signing is a great endorsement for the club’s positive transformation over the last two years,” Eels Chairman Steve Sharp said.
“Our Head Coach, Brad Arthur, has done a tremendous job in building a quality squad that is ready to become a force in the NRL, and the addition of Kieran will only further strengthen our side.”
Foran has played 129 NRL games and is the current vice-captain of the New Zealand Kiwis, a side he has captained twice.
“Kieran is an outstanding talent who will play an important part of our team from the 2016 season,” Dyldam Parramatta Eels CEO Scott Seward said.
“Players of Kieran’s calibre are rare in the NRL, and he will play a major role in our plans for the future at the club.”
“This club is hungry for success and we are thrilled to attract players whose skill and attitude will keep adding to the strength of our football side.”
“We wish him all the best for the remainder of the 2015 season.”
