Canberra have confirmed the re-signing of outside back Daniel Vidot until the end of the 2012 NRL season.

The 19-year-old, who debuted in round 18 this year, has made nine appearances for the Raiders, scoring six tries.

The Queenslander moved to the nation's capital in 2008 and was a member of the Raiders' premiership winning under-20s squad that year.

Vidot said he was hoping to establish himself as a first-grade player after signing his new deal.

"The Raiders are a great club and really supportive and the players are well looked after, especially us young blokes," he said.

"I love Canberra, it's a great place to be and I'm glad I can remain in the green jersey."

Raiders coach David Furner said the club was thrilled to have Vidot for a couple more seasons and said his decision to stay in Canberra reinforces the strong bond there is amongst the Raiders playing group.

"Daniel's been in our system since under-18s and got his chance to play NRL late in the 2009 season. He's shown he's got plenty of potential and it's great to have him re-signed for a further two years," Furner said.

"I think the big factor for us here in Canberra is the environment we create for our players and unless you've been here you don't know what it's like."
