FRANCE international Kevin Larroyer has committed his future to Hull Kingston Rovers after signing a three-year deal.
The second-row, 26, has spent the last two seasons on loan from Catalans Dragons and proved a key member of Chris Chester’s squad.
However, Larroyer - who has scored 10 tries in 51 games for Rovers - has now made the move permanent.
“I’m really happy and I’ve been really looking forward to this news being announced because I love the club,” said the player, who was a member of their Challenge Cup final side at Wembley last month.
“I came in last year and they treated me very well and I always wanted to stay for a long time and be part of the project here.
“I can see that we are making progress and I’m sure it will be the same next season.
“I’ve not reached 100 per cent of my potential yet but I know I’m here for three more years and I can focus on what I have to work on.
“Next year, I want to be consistent and play well for the club to give something back.”
Chester said: “We’re pleased to tie Kevin down to a permanent contract with the club and he’s somebody with a lot of potential to develop and improve his game.
“Last season, he was one of our most consistent performers and he’s shown his versatility this year by playing in a couple of different positions across the back row.
“He’s still got his best years ahead of him and we’re looking forward to working with him for another three seasons.”
