Penrith star Josh Mansour has rejected interest from a number of rival NRL clubs to re-sign with the Panthers on a three-year deal.
Mansour appeared to be on the way out of the Panthers after being linked to Canterbury and Parramatta, but announced the contract before Thursday night's NRL clash with the Wests Tigers.
"I'm extremely grateful and excited to have committed my future to Panthers. This club has given me everything and shaped me into the person I am today, on and off the field," Mansour said.
"While I had to consider my options, my overwhelming desire was to stay at Panthers, as my heart has always been with this club. I feel I've got unfinished business here."
Mansour, who is in rehabilitation after an ugly facial fracture earlier this season, was part of the Kangaroos' World Cup-winning squad last year.
It came after breaking into the NSW State of Origin team in 2016, when he also crowned Dally M winger of the year.
"I want Josh Mansour to be a part of the Panthers for the rest of his life. I can give him no greater accolade," Panthers boss Phil Gould said.
Mansour's re-signing leaves captain and hooker Peter Wallace as the only member of the team's first-choice 17 without a contract next season.
