Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have secured the signing of Joe Arundel.

The 23 year old, centre, has joined the Wildcats from Super League rivals Hull FC on a deal that will see him in the red, white and blue until the end of the season.

Arundel joined Hull FC ahead of the 2013 campaign, having previously made over 40 appearances for his hometown club Castleford Tigers, before the age of 20.

The England Knight's representative, was given the number 3 shirt by Hull in his first season with the black and whites, however midway through last season, he joined Bradford Bulls on loan and impressed in his spell at The Provident Stadium, making 12 appearances.

Head Coach James Webster, is pleased with the signing of Arundel saying, "Joe's experience will enable us to strengthen a position that we have been looking for more competition in all pre season."

"We have been patient in that we needed to find a player that could really push for selection that was within what very small amount of budget we had left and with him coming to a financial agreement with Hull allows us to do so. We have been able to pick up yet another player that is hungry but also extremely good value."

Arundel has also expressed his delight in joining the club, "I am grateful to be able to get this opportunity to join Wakefield Wildcats, it will allow me to focus on my game and improve to the standard I know I am capable of, but to also enjoy playing rugby again."

Joe is now available for player sponsorship, please call Verity on 01924 211 611 or email verity.thomas@wakefieldwildcats.co.uk.
