Westerman, 23, has made 77 appearances for the club, scoring 23 tries and kicking 46 goals, since being signed from Castleford three years ago.

He told the club website:  "I'm really looking forward to working with [new coach] Lee Radford.

"He has an exciting vision for the club which you can already see him starting to mould into shape."

A former Super League Young Player of the Year, Westerman has also earned England Knights honours during his time at the KC Stadium.

Radford said: "Joe is a natural footballer with bags of talent, something which he probably still hasn't quite realised to its maximum potential yet.

"We're looking for Joe within this deal to become a more consistent player and he knows that.

"We've seen glimpses of what he is capable of, but we want to be seeing it week in, week out and that is a challenge Joe himself is looking forward to."
