Penrith playmaker Matt Burton will follow Trent Barrett to Canterbury, but not until 2022 as the new coach continues his Bulldogs overhaul.
Burton will remain at the Panthers next season, the Bulldogs confirming the half’s three-year NRL deal from 2022 on Wednesday.
It continues former Penrith assistant Barrett’s Belmore restructure, with Burton set to partner Sydney Roosters recruit Kyle Flanagan.
“Having someone of Matt’s ability want to be part of what we are building here at Belmore is exciting for everyone involved at the club and all our members and fans,” Bulldogs CEO Andrew Hill said.
