Canterbury Bulldogs full-back Moses Mbye will leave the club at the end of the season to take up a four-year deal with Wests Tigers.

The 24-year-old has scored 16 tries in 92 appearances for the Bulldogs since he made his NRL debut in 2014.

But Mbye will make the switch to the Tigers ahead of next season and will be at the club until at least the end of the 2022 season.

Tigers coach Ivan Cleary is excited to work with Mbye.

Cleary said: “Moses is a talented young man and we look forward to having him join Wests Tigers next season.

“He’s developed into an exciting player and I know he’ll bring a lot to our club, both on and off the field.”

Bulldogs chief executive Andrew Hill has thanked Mbye for his efforts at the club.

He said: “Today I would like to confirm that Moses Mbye has sought a release from his current contract which the club has granted.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Moses for his time with the Bulldogs and his contribution to the club on and off the field.

“Even though he will be taking up an offer to join the Wests Tigers for season 2019, I know that he is committed to putting all his energies into the Bulldogs for the rest of this season and finishing strongly with the club.

“Making this announcement now means that both Moses and the club can now put all their focus on making sure that we have a strong second half to this season.”
