Leeds Rhinos have secured 23-year-old centre Jimmy Keinhorst by agreeing a new three year deal with the German international that will keep him at Headingley Carnegie until at least the end of the 2016 Super League season.

Keinhorst broke into the Rhinos team in 2012 and played in the Carnegie Challenge Cup Final at Wembley against Warrington that year whilst still a student at Leeds Metropolitan University. Last season, he showed his growing maturity with three tries in nine first team appearances as well as gaining experience on dual registration at Hunslet Hawks, where he scored 13 tries in 15 appearances for the South Leeds club.

Commenting on the new deal Leeds Rhinos Head Coach Brian McDermott said, "We are delighted that Jimmy has agreed the new deal and I look forward to seeing him develop even further over the next three years. Securing Jimmy adds to the strength in our squad and that will be important next season. He showed great maturity last season to continue to work hard on his game whilst at Hunslet Hawks and earned a recall to the first team through his own commitment and attitude which bodes well for his future development."

Keinhorst, who has been capped eight times by Germany, commented, "I am pleased to have agreed the new contract and I am looking forward to a big pre-season and trying to earn my place in the squad for 2014. The experience of training and playing with world class players at Leeds has helped me develop my game and hopefully I can continue that process next season and beyond."
