Wakefield Trinity set to complete sensational double signing from Super League giants

Wakefield Trinity may have been relegated but the club is throwing its weight around after getting new owners and are widely expected to return to Super League and become a mainstay under Matt Ellis and Daryl Powell.

The club have also made its ambition clear in terms of targeting major signings and that has led to reports that they will move to sign Tom Johnstone at the end of 2024 upon the expiry of his current contract.

Johnstone left Wakefield Trinity at the end of 2022 and showed he belonged at the top of Super League with Catalans Dragons.

Powell has been previously asked about the rumour that he could return to the club. When asked if he could shed any light on the matter, Powell said: “Not really, just there’s rumours about everywhere, about all sorts of things. I think the one thing we want to be is a team in the top four in Super League so I suppose those sort of rumours will continue yeah but we want to be signing top quality players I haven’t got any news on anybody at the moment but you know for certain we’ll be in the market for some of the top players in the game.”

Wakefield Trinity set for double coup

This Tom Johnstone rumour was originally reported by Rugby League Live but he is not the only player from the Catalans Dragons who has been linked with a move to Wakefield Trinity.

Former Castleford Tigers star and fellow England international Mike McMeeken is also reportedly being lined up for a move to Wakefield Trinity.

This was originally reported by the Yorkshire Post and since French publication L’Independent has reported that the duo are headed to Belle Vue in 2025 with Tom Davies also set to leave the club to either Hull KR or St Helens with Sky Sports revealing Hull KR as the front runners.

Speaking of Sky Sports, they have also reported that Wakefield Trinity are set to sign both Tom Johnstone and Mike McMeeken which would be a mega double coup for the club as they look to become a top Super League club.
