Wakefield Trinity have completed the signing of George King from Warrington after the forward agreed a two-year deal.
King made 97 appearances for Warrington after making his way through the ranks, but is now looking forward to a fresh start and challenge over the Pennines.
The 23-year-old will link up with the Trinity squad when they return for pre-season training next month and he cannot wait to get started with his new club.

“Chris Chester came to speak to me during the season and sold me the vision for the club and the direction of where Wakefield is going,” King said. “I am really looking forward to it and being able to meet the rest of the lads in pre-season.”
Meanwhile, Wakefield coach Chester is also delighted to have him on board.
“George will add some real toughness to what already is a big pack,” he added. “He will bring plenty of energy to the group and I am really pleased that he has chosen to sign for Wakefield for the next couple of seasons.
“I look forward to working with him and seeing what he can bring to the side.”
