Broncos tie forward down to two-year deal
London Broncos prop Olsi Krasniqi has penned a new two-year contract to remain with the Super League club where his career took off.
Krasniqi, who came through the Broncos' academy system, made 92 appearances for the London side between 2010 and 2014 before moving to Salford Red Devils.
The Albanian subsequently joined Championship pacesetters Toronto Wolfpack in 2018 and most recently had a spell on loan at Bradford Bulls.
However, his impact since his return to the capital has been crucial to the Broncos' chances of prolonging their stay in Super League as the club have won four of the five matches Krasniqi has started since his return to Trailfinders Sports Ground on a short-term deal in May.
"I am really pleased to have signed a new deal here at London Broncos," said the 27-year-old.
"It was an easy decision to make as I have really enjoyed being back in the capital. The club has given me so much from being a Scholarship player to making my professional debut and then giving me the chance to come back home this year. The most important thing now is to do my best and to do the jersey the justice it deserves."
Broncos head coach Danny Ward added: "Olsi has performed really well since being back at the Broncos and we are very happy to extend his contract.
To come into the team halfway through the season can be tough but he has fitted in well within the group. He brings a lot of experience and is developing in a leadership role, passing his knowledge down to the younger guys."
