The Wildcats can confirm that prop Kyle Amor has joined St. Helens on a four-year contract.

Kyle Amor has signed for St. Helens on a four-year contract.

The 26-year old Cumbrian joined the Wildcats on loan from Leeds Rhinos in 2011 and then signed a permanent deal in 2012, developing his game at the club to become a much sought after prop.

He made 73 appearances in Wildcats colours during his time at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium, scoring nine tries.

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats Chairman, Michael Carter, commented: “Kyle came to me and let me know that he would like to leave the club and that he wouldn’t sign a new contract when it was due to expire at the end of next season.

“We were left with the option of seeing him leave at the end of next season for nothing, or securing a transfer fee for a player that was much sought after.  On that basis, and with Kyle’s desire to leave, it was a straightforward decision.

“Kyle has been fantastic for us in the last few seasons, and along with the coaching staff has got his game to a level where top clubs wanted him in their squad.  We wish Kyle all the best and thank him for his efforts with the club.”

The club can also confirm that Oliver Wilkes has joined Leigh Centurions on a one-year deal for 2014 after his contract expired.

Wilkes, who has two spells at the club, re-joined the club at the start of 2012 from London Broncos, and totaled 99 Super League appearances in his two stints at the club.

He was a part of the 2009 squad that achieved a best ever Super League finish of fifth place and was a popular player amongst supporters.

Everyone at the club wish both Oliver and Kyle all the best in their future careers and thank them for their efforts at the club.

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
