Wests Tigers fullback Corey Thompson has shunned a late approach from Penrith to secure his future with the Tigers.

According to the Herald, Thompson is set to sign a two-year deal to remain with the Tigers until the end of the 2021 season.

In a recent interview with the Herald, Thompson said he was looking to secure a two-year deal after a series of one-season contracts.

“I’m really working hard for a two-year deal. I think it’s a bit hard on the mind, just playing one-year deals, when you are always off contract,” Thompson said.

“Last year I was lucky, I re-signed in April so it was pretty much a two-year deal. I just want to work hard and show I’m an asset to the team.”

Penrith coach Ivan Cleary is a big admirer of the fullback and was keen to link up with the 29-year-old again at the Panthers.
