Newcastle winger James McManus has signed a new contract with the Knights that will keep him at the NRL club until 2013.

"I love the town, I love the team and I am ecstatic that my fiancee Eshia and I get to stay here for the next three years," McManus said.

After a series of injuries limited him to just eight games in the 18 months following his 2009 NSW debut, McManus is fit and well prepared for the start of 2011.

"I spent six weeks in the off-season on the hills of King Edward park getting some miles under my legs.

"My body feels fit and healthy and I'm excited for what's to come in season 2011."

Knights Coach Rick Stone was pleased to announce the re-signing of the 24-year-old Scottish born McManus.

"It is a massive boost for our club at this time of year, James sets the standards in attention to detail and work ethic and his success since he has been in first grade is just reward for his hard work," Stone said.
