Penrith backrower Luke Lewis has reportedly signed a four-year NRL deal with Cronulla.

The highly sought after NSW Origin star turned down offers from Newcastle, the Wests Tigers and Parramatta to join the Sharks under coach Shane Flanagan, according to News Limited reports.

Lewis had been granted a release from the final two years of his contract with Penrith earlier this month after saying he needed a fresh start.

The request followed a decision by Panthers coach Ivan Cleary to dump Lewis as captain during the State of Origin period.
