WELLINGTON, May 8 AAP - The New Zealand Warriors have re-signed wing Manu Vatuvei for a further two NRL seasons.

The club ended speculation about the 27-year-old's future by announcing he would extended his contract to encompass 12 consecutive years, through to the end of 2015.

The backline powerhouse has scored 105 tries in 156 games, one of the leading strike rates in the NRL.

"My heart is always here at the Warriors and always will be," Vatuvei said in a statement.

"It's where I wanted to stay and so did my family so I couldn't be happier it has worked out this way."

Vatuvei's manager Peter Brown said he had fielded expressions of interest in Vatuvei from other NRL clubs, English Super League clubs and from rugby union.
