Amor staying with Wakefield

Kyle Amor will remain a Wakefield player until the end of 2014 after Leeds opted not to take up a re-sign clause in his contract.

Amor, 25, first appeared for the Wildcats on loan in 2011, and at the end of last season, the two clubs agreed a unique deal for 2012 that meant there was an option for the Rhinos to re-sign the prop for 2013.

He will now remain at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium until the end of 2014.

Amor said: “I’m really looking forward to the next two years here.

“I’m still developing as a player and the last couple of seasons have been my first taste of getting regular game time in Super League and this year has been the most I’ve enjoyed any season I’ve ever played in.

“I enjoy coming into training every day and I know all the boys talk about it, but we really do all get on well and it’s a good place to be.”

The Cumbrian first caught the attention of Super League clubs while playing for hometown club Whitehaven.

He made three Super League appearances for Leeds in 2010, but has spent the past two years with Wakefield, where he has made more than 50 appearances.

Head Coach Richard Agar said: “We’re delighted that Kyle is staying with us.

As the season has progressed he has got stronger and developed his all round game.  He’s got a real desire to keep pushing forward and we hope he can continue to develop with us in the next couple of years.”
