The Parramatta Eels have announced four new signings including Kirisome Auva'a and Will Smith for the 2017 season.

Eels coach Brad Arthur said that the club's recruitment and retention for 2017 was targeted at building on a strong platform from last year and providing enhanced competition across all positions.

"I am pleased with the squad we have assembled and I expect that we will be able to continue to progress forward as a group in 2017," Arthur said.

"We have a good mix of experienced and developing players who offer the team the opportunity to improve on last year. However what's important now is our attitude and commitment towards our preparation for the 2017 season."
