Australia international half-back Todd Carney has signed a new three-year deal with Catalans Dragons.

The announcement was made on social mediaexternal-link after the club's awards night on Tuesday, which saw Canberra Raiders-bound England back-row Elliott Whitehead win player of the year.

Carney moved to Super League after his sacking by former club Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks in 2014.

He scored five tries in 12 appearances in his debut season, limited by injury.

Carney's decision to remain with the Dragons comes ahead of the arrival of Warrington's Richie Myler.

Fellow half Scott Dureau is returning to his native Australia this summer.
