Sydney Roosters captain James Tedesco has signed a contract extension that ties him to the club until at least the end of 2025.
James Tedesco re-signs with Sydney Roosters
James Tedesco has signed a one-year contract extension to remain at the Sydney Roosters, ending speculation over his ability to co-exist on the same roster as Joseph-Aukuso Suaalii.
Tedesco had been contracted to the end of 2024 on a deal worth a reported $1.1 million per season.
By retaining him through 2025, the Roosters have prevented rival clubs from opening negotiations with their captain after November 1.
Tedesco’s new deal comes after speculation as to whether the Roosters could keep him as well as Joey Manu and Suaalii, highly rated fullbacks in their own right currently playing in the outside backs.
