Warrington Wolves star’s future confirmed after link with major transfer

Toby King of Wigan Warriors

Warrington Wolves and former Wigan Warriors centre Toby King has had a funny few seasons.

In 2021, his contract was expiring and there were a queue of clubs chasing the centre including then Champions St Helens and brother George King’s club Hull KR. But he elected to agree a new long term deal with the club.

This was just as Daryl Powell took charge of the club and soon enough it became clear that King’s future at Warrington was in doubt.

The centre was then swapped for Jake Wardle in a strange either way loan move. Huddersfield Giants wanted to make the move permanent but Warrington wanted to extend the loan move through in 2023.

In the end, Wigan brought both to the club but only King on loan. This time it was Wigan who wanted to keep King but Warrington have brought him back to the club because of the value he now represents on the salary cap.

But even then his future was in doubt with rumours running rampant that he could join St Helens for the 2024 season replacing Will Hopoate.

However, King is set to stay at the Halliwell Jones. The Warrington Guardian have reported that he will be staying at the club and this seems to have been confirmed by the fact he has been given the number three shirt by Sam Burgess in 2024.

It will be exciting to see him partner with Warrington’s two brilliant wingers such as Matty Ashton.

The winger picked up the Ken Kelly Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year trophies for the second consecutive season. He was also awarded the Vice Presidents’ Player of the Year.

The speedster has had another impressive campaign on the field, with 20 tries in all competitions – his most in a single season for Warrington.

Fellow winger Josh Thewlis has been another standout performer in recent years and the 21-year-old was voted the club’s Young Player of the Year.

Josh’s brother Jake was voted the Reserves Player of the Year with prop Joe Bajer picking up the Academy award and Oliver Morgan for the Under 16s.
