Leigh coach John Duffy said: “I looked at signing Matty when he was still at London and he’s a player I’ve always been aware of.
“He’s tough, consistent and I think he will benefit being closer to home. He runs good lines and will be a great addition to our squad.”
Gee said: “I can’t wait to get started with Leigh. I’m a Billinge lad and I’ve been looking to move closer to home so when the chance came to come to Leigh, it was a no-brainer for me.
“Leigh are a club with a big fanbase and a great stadium and I’m looking forward to helping them push for Super League.”
