Melbourne halfback Cooper Cronk has followed coach Craig Bellamy in signing a new deal which will tie him to the NRL premiers for the next five years.

Cronk has agreed to a four-year contract extension with more than a year remaining on his current deal.

He will now remain at the Storm until the end of the 2013 season.

The 24-year-old has blossomed into one of the game's best halfbacks under Bellamy's tutelage, winning a premiership and earning representative honours for Australia last year.

It is the second major long-term contract boost for the Storm this year, after Bellamy signed a deal in April to keep him in Melbourne until 2013.

"I enjoy playing footy for this club, I enjoy the game of rugby league and I particularly enjoy the lifestyle in Melbourne," Cronk said.

"It's been pretty successful over the last couple of years. It's a pleasure to turn up to training, it's a pleasure to run out in the Storm guernsey.

"If we can keep the majority of this team together, we can do some things that can put a smile on a lot of people's faces."
