Wakefield have signed prop Adam Walker from St Helens on a two-and-half year deal with immediate effect.
The 26-year-old Scottish international arrived at Saints prior to this season following the relegation of his previous club Hull KR.
He made nine appearances for the RedVee but was not part of new coach Justin Holbrook’s plans, thus giving Wakefield the opportunity to sign Walker ahead of a crucial period of the season.
“I am looking forward to getting out there, I have known Chris (Chester) most of my professional playing career,” Walker told Trinity’s website.
“I met him when I played for Scotland about six or seven years ago and I know what to expect from him and he knows what to expect from me, so I am looking forward to playing under him again.”
Chester was delighted to have signed his ex-teammate stating: “He is one of the best young British forwards in Super League and we have beat off a host of other Super League clubs for his signature.
“I would like to thank St Helens and Michael (Carter) for making this deal happen and I am sure he will become a fans favourite at the club for many years,” the Wakefield boss added.
