Ryan Murray signs with Delta Academy

Ryan Murray has agreed to a contract with the Swadesdens, according to multiple reports.

The former New Zealand all-rounder was one of the top recruits from the 2019 Under-18 World Cup.

The 27-year-old is the eighth and final draft pick of the 2019 draft, but is only in the final year of his contract with Aucklanders, which expires in 2022.

Murray will make a $1 million signing bonus.

The New Zealand international is the third New Zealand player to sign with Delta after the likes of Sonny Bill Williams and Kane Douglas, who signed on the same day.

The Swadesden will receive an additional $1.1 million in cap space.
