Castleford Tigers star Jake Trueman’s future confirmed

Jake Trueman has been heavily linked with a move to Hull FC for the past month or so following the deadline for negotiations – May 1 – has passed.

The livewire halfback has been at Castleford Tigers since the start of the 2017 Super League season – the year in which he debuted as a teenager – and has grown to be one of the Tigers’ most important players in their side.

However, with Trueman out of contract at the end of 2022, he has been linked with a move to the MKM Stadium and now head coach Lee Radford has confirmed that he will not be at the Jungle in 2023.

Radford, when addressing rumours of a potential move for Warrington Wolves star Gareth Widdop, dismissed those claims but also revealed that Trueman will be leaving.

“I didn’t know he (Widdop) had been linked, it’s news to me,” Radford joked on BBC Radio Leeds.

“Are we talking in sign language?

“With Truey (Trueman) obviously going, there is going to obviously be eight million halves thrown in the hat with the lack of depth in this country with halves.

“So, I think anybody who is out of contract is an option – and he’s an A grade player.”

It marks the end of an era for Trueman at Castleford following a seven-year spell.
