New Zealand forwards Nelson Asofa-Solomona, Felise Kaufusi and Kenny Bromwich headline five key re-signings for the Melbourne Storm before this week's final-round NRL blockbuster against Cronulla.

Asofa-Solomona - one of the NRL's emerging star big men - and Kaufusi have inked one-year contract extensions while Bromwich has signed through until the end of 2018.
Fellow forward Mark Nicholls has also signed until the end of 2017 while centre Cheyse Blair has joined Bromwich in signing for two seasons.

The new deals come not long after the key re-signing of star halfback Cooper Cronk.

Storm pivot Blake Green said on Monday he would likely wait until the end of the season to reveal his future plans.

Although, it is widely expected he'll sign with Manly.

"All five players are an integral part of Melbourne Storm both now and into the future," Storm football director Frank Ponissi said.

"It was important for us to see these boys stay at the Club to help us strive for continued success.

"We look forward to seeing all of them continue to develop, improve and play good football in Melbourne next season and beyond."
