Wakefield have signed former Huddersfield back-rower Jon Molloy, just a month after he signed a three-year deal with Salford.
Molloy, 22, left the Reds in mysterious circumstances but has now been offered a lifeline by the Wildcats, who have given him the deal until the end of 2014.
He said: “To be honest, I am over the moon. It’s good to get my life on track, push on and get some games under my belt.
“Rich (Agar) got in contact and said he’d seen me play a couple of times and he liked me and he wanted me before, and I’ve actually almost come here before and I’ve always thought about coming here.”
Molloy is a product of the Wigan academy set-up, switching to Huddersfield in 2010 where he went on to make five first team appearances.
Wildcats coach Richard Agar said: “He’s a player we’ve had our eye on for some time and monitored. I tried to sign him before for my previous club and we had a play for him last year but Huddersfield were reluctant to part company with him.
“Circumstances have changed and we’ve got him down and he’s been training with us and we’re really happy with the condition of him. He is a player that given time will develop into a regular first grade Super League player.”
