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 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 their number one playmaker in recent seasons.
However, with Trueman out of contract at the end of 2022, he has been linked with a move to the MKM Stadium with head coach Lee Radford previously confirming that he will not be at the Jungle in 2023.
“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, to further cement those claims, a Rugby League Live editor has revealed that Hull FC will indeed be his next destination.
It marks the end of an era for Trueman at Castleford following a seven-year spell.
It also marks a potential upheaval in the halves at Hull, just two years after bringing in Josh Reynolds and just one after bringing in Luke Gale.
He'll be playing for Hull FC next year.
