Super League star set for big money

Clubs like Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves, Hull FC and Hull KR have all made big transfer announcements lately and more rumours are making their way round the rumour mill every day it seems.

We have seen Leeds linked with a shock move for former Huddersfield Giants star Danny Levi in recent times whist Warrington Wolves are constantly linked with potential forward targets week in and week out following the exits of Thomas Mikaele and Josh McGuire.

Hull FC have been linked with Adam Clune as a potential replacement for the departing Jake Clifford.

Meanwhile St Helens have been linked with the likes of Matt Whitley.

However, one rumour has become fact.

This week, Wigan Warriors have announced that Adam Keighran has signed a two-year deal with the club from the 2024 season.

The 26-year-old, who has played at centre, stand-off and hooker, will join the Warriors after the completion of the current season with the Catalans Dragons.

He began his career at Penrith Panthers playing in the New South Wales Cup where he was picked as one of two centres of the year, before making his first grade debut for the New Zealand Warriors in Round One of the 2019 season.

He then had two seasons at the Sydney Roosters making 17 NRL appearances before joining the Catalans Dragon for the 2023 season.

Adam Keighran said: “My family and I are looking forward to the next 2 years at Wigan.

“I’m eager to continue learning and improving my game under the staff there, learn the history of the Club and hoping to add to the success the Club already has.”

Wigan Head Coach Matt Peet added: “We are excited to welcome Adam and his family to Wigan.

“His form for Catalans has been excellent this season and I look forward to working with him. He will bring athleticism and a high skill level to our back line.”

Now reports in France have emerged that have shed more light on the move and why Keighran was tempted to leave the sunshine of Catalans despite the fact they sit top of the league at present.

According to Treize Mondial, the Warriors have offered Keighran a “big deal” to secure his services for next year and beyond.
