St George Illawarra have confirmed the signing of Parramatta star Corey Norman on a three-year deal.

Norman will now be contracted until at least the end of the 2021 season, and was excited to make the move to the Dragons.

“It’s a big day for myself and my family. There are some exciting times ahead,” Norman told dragons.com.au.

“The Dragons squad at the moment is really good and coming off a good year so I’m really looking forward to playing with the boys and spending plenty of good seasons here.”

The 27-year-old spent the last five seasons at the Eels and played 107 games during him time there, while also playing for Brisbane for 63 games between 2010-2013.

“Corey is a player who will entertain all members and fans with his ability in attack. He is a player who we see will take us to the next level with the way he plays the game,” Dragons Director of Rugby League Pathways and List Management Ian Millward told the club’s website.

“When we make these decisions, it’s not always about pure recruitment. We talk to our senior players, we speak to our coach. Overall, we have been impressed.

“Straight away, there will be speculation around the position he’ll play and that’ll be up to the coach. We feel Corey as a quality player will give Paul (coach McGregor) an opportunity to work with some really outstanding talent.”
