Michael Shenton has ended speculation over his future by signing a new two-year contract with Castleford.
The 22-year-old Tigers centre had been linked with a move to Bradford Bulls as a replacement for Shontayne Hape but he has decided to stay at the Jungle.
Coach Terry Matterson told BBC Radio Leeds: "There was a lot of interest in Michael but we've put a lot of work into getting him where he is today.
"I know he always wanted to stay at Cas and I'm really pleased we've got him."
Matterson added: "He's another one to pledge his future after Joe Westerman and it's really important that we keep hold of our quality juniors.
"That's happening so the future's looking bright here."
