Canterbury prop Ryan Tandy has ended speculation about his future by signing a new two-year contract with the NRL club.

Tandy joined the Bulldogs just six weeks ago on a short-term deal until the end of the season after securing an early release from his contract with the Melbourne Storm following the salary cap scandal.

The 28-year-old, who has enjoyed spells with St George Illawarra, Wests Tigers and South Sydney as well as stints with Hull KR and Widnes in England, had been linked with a return to the English Super League.

However, following a strong start to his career with the Bulldogs, the club have acted swiftly to secure his long-term services.

"Ryan packed up his car after finishing up with the Storm on the Friday, drove 10 hours to Sydney on Saturday and started training with the Bulldogs on Sunday. Since then he hasn't looked back," said Bulldogs coach Kevin Moore.

"We've been impressed by his professionalism and he's certainly made a big difference to our go-forward.

"It was a major decision for Ryan to leave the Storm, but he backed his ability to secure a long-term contract and we're really pleased that we'll have him at the Bulldogs for another two years."

Tandy admitted he was relieved to have his future resolved.

"Obviously I'm glad to have things sorted and I'm very happy that I'll be at the Bulldogs for the next two years," Tandy said.

"There was a fair bit of uncertainty around contracts when I left the Storm so heading to the Bulldogs mid-season was a move I felt I had to make. Now my future is clear I can settle in and continue to develop my game."
