Michael Jennings has signed with the Parramatta Eels, joining a high profile list of players to leave the Roosters.

Michael Jennings has officially signed with the Parramatta Eels for the next four seasons the club announced on Monday.

Jennings, 27, joins the Blue and Gold from the 2016 season onwards after securing a release from the Sydney Roosters.

With 193 NRL games under his belt, the Penrith District junior has played six Tests for Australia and three Tests for Tonga, as well as representing the VB NSW Blues in 16 State of Origin clashes.

"Michael is very keen to join the Eels based on the direction the club is going and the environment we're building, and he'll be a valuable asset on and off the field," CEO John Boulous said.

"We have a very specific strategic plan for the next few seasons and his belief in our club's purpose will help deliver that."

Roosters Chief Operating Officer Football, Brian Canavan, said: "It is with reluctance that we have granted this request for Michael's immediate release. However, we do so with the view that it is in his best interests to secure his long-term future."
