The 29-year-old will make the switch from Hull and return to his hometown club. The England international won the Challenge Cup during his spell at the MKM Stadium and last season topped the Super League assist charts.

Jake Connor: Although it wasn’t an easy decision, it’s definitely the right one

Connor said “I’m absolutely buzzing to be coming back. Although it wasn’t an easy decision, it’s definitely the right one for me and my family. I feel like I’ve got some unfinished business at the club and I’ve got some old mates here that I can’t wait to catch up with.

“I’m really looking forward to working under Ian Watson and also Luke Robinson who I know well. I’ve played against Ian’s sides on numerous occasions and they’re always well drilled. We’ve got a good squad and a good structure and I can’t wait to be a part of it and enjoy my rugby.”

‘He is a huge signing for us’

Head coach Ian Watson added: “I’d like to welcome Jake Connor back to the Giants. He is a huge signing for us. Jake is a player I have admired from afar, and is a tough competitor who wants to win at all costs and will drive people in his team to be better and want more.

“Last year we were the 4th best attack in Super League and hopefully adding Jake into our team can propel us to score even more points while maintaining our defensive mentality.

“This is a great moment for Huddersfield to get back one of our own players and a lot of credit should go to Richard and Ken for working so hard to get this deal through.”
