St Helens half-back Jonny Lomax has signed a new four-year deal to keep him with the Super League club until the end of the 2022 season.

The 28-year-old came through the Saints academy and has made 190 appearances since his debut in 2009.

"I am made up to have re-signed for the team I have supported and followed from a young age in the stands," he said.

"My career has had its up and downs, but hopefully we can now add to the good times in the pursuit of trophies."

Lomax's decision to extending his stay with the club follows team-mates Tommy Makinson and James Roby also signing new deals.
