Leigh are set to complete the signing of prop Mitch Clark, following his release from Castleford, report League Express.
The 26-year-old, who has signed for Wigan next year, will reportedly join the Centurions on a short-term deal until the end of this season.
Clark has seemingly fallen out of favour with Daryl Powell’s side since he announced his departure to the Warriors, with Castleford also rejecting the opportunity for him to join his future club early.
And it is now believed that the club have instead agreed for him to join John Duffy’s Leigh on a short-term basis.
Castleford director of rugby Jon Wells said: “Mitch has left the Tigers to pursue another short-term playing opportunity.
“Mitch has recently found first-team football hard to come by at the Tigers and all parties felt a move away would enable him to do what rugby league players like doing best.
“He’s been a great bloke and a big contributor at the club over the last 18 months and we would like to wish him all the very best for the rest of this year and as a Wigan player from next season.”
