Demetriou signs new Wildcats deal

Jason Demetriou
Demetriou was expected to be out for the season

Wakefield captain Jason Demetriou has signed a two-year extension to his contract, after overcoming a career-threatening injury earlier this season.

The 32-year-old was ruled out for the season with a serious neck injury in April but came back in the 28-26 win over Huddersfield on 15 June.

Boss John Kear told the club website: "It cements the squad's stability for the next couple of years."

The versatile star's contract had been due to expire at the end of the season.
