Dragons fullback Matt Dufty has insisted he will remain at the club for the 2019 season, despite rumours he could be forced out of the club.
"I've had a chat with the senior staff members at the club and they have assured me of my spot in 2019 so I'm keen to rip into pre-season and beyond for the Dragons," Dufty told the club's website.
"The club reassured me that if anything were to happen that they'd let me know before it hit the papers which is great to hear because I have a great relationship with everyone at the club and I'm looking to ripping in for them and all the boys."
Rumours swirled that Dufty was set to depart the Dragons to make way for the club-less Jarryd Hayne.
However, Dragons Director of Rugby League Pathways and List Management Ian Millward echoed Dutfy's words.
"The speculation and misinformation surrounding Matt's future has been disappointing," Millward said.
"Matt is contracted for 2019 and will definitely be a part of our squad next year, there has never been any internal discussion that suggested otherwise."
