The 20-year-old made his debut in round 12 before crossing for 19 tries in 13 games in a stunning start to his NRL career.

French's campaign saw him break the Eels record for most tries in a debut season, beating Jarryd Hayne's mark.

Eels coach Brad Arthur was thrilled with the re-signing, saying: "Bevan's development this year was a real positive for the cub and I am sure our members and fans are pleased that we have secured Bevan for at least another three seasons.

"We have had a strategy over the last two months to retain our key players and provide strong additions for our squad going into 2017.

"We have made good progress so far and it's our intention to continue this strategy as we lead into the 2017 pre-season."

The Eels finished 14th this season after being stripped of 12 competition points for salary cap breaches.
