SYDNEY, July 7 AAP - Manly hooker Matt Ballin has re-signed with the NRL club until the end of the 2015 season.

The move comes as the Sea Eagles attempt to shore up their playing roster after recently losing NSW backrower Tony Williams to Canterbury.

Ballin had been chased by a number of clubs including North Queensland and Canberra but the 28-year-old said he was always keen to stay.

"My family and I are extremely happy to be at the Manly club for the next three years," Ballin said in a statement on Saturday.

"The club has always been loyal and supportive of me and my family since I started here."

Manly coach Geoff Toovey said he was happy the club had retained the former Queensland Origin representative who debuted for the Sea Eagles in 2007 and has played 132 first grade games.

"Matt is a great clubman and a great ambassador for Manly and rugby league," Toovey said.

"He is a tireless competitor and his teammates love playing alongside him."
