Kirk Dixon has signed a new three-year contract extension with Super League club Castleford Tigers.

The new deal will keep the 26-year-old winger at the Tigers until at least the end of the 2014 season.

During his Castleford career Dixon has made 119 appearances, scoring 64 tries and kicking 238 goals for a total of 732 points.

Dixon said: "I'm absolutely over the moon - Castleford is a club that I didn't want to leave.

Dixon joined the club from Hull FC in 2007 and is one of only four players remaining from the Tigers' squad that gained promotion back to the Super League that year.

"They decided they wanted to keep me and it wasn't a tough decision. I owe the club a lot of gratitude and it's somewhere that I want to be. I enjoy my time here and that's why I decided to sign," Dixon added.
