Leigh have signed prop Adam Sidlow from Toronto Wolfpack for the 2021 season.
The 33-year-old has made almost 300 career appearances for Widnes, Workington, Salford, Bradford and Toronto.
Sidlow will link up with former Toronto team-mates Matty Russell, Joe Mellor and Blake Wallace who have all joined the Centurions ahead of next season.
Sidlow said: “John Duffy is assembling a great squad full of Super League quality and I’m looking forward to chipping in and doing what I can to help the club achieve its goals.
“It’s been a tough year, especially going without pay for several months at Toronto but now it’s good to have something to look forward to and be positive about. John Duffy’s teams have always impressed me with the way they play and I’m looking forward to playing for him.
“People tell me he’s a no-nonsense coach and I respect that. I’m looking forward to getting stuck into preseason training and working with him. My best mate is Mike Morrison who used to play for Leigh and he couldn’t speak highly enough about John Duffy and the club.”

Leigh coach John Duffy said: “Adam is a consistent performer who has always impressed me throughout his career. Not many front-rowers can play big minutes like Adam and he’s going to fit right in at Leigh Centurions.
“He’s based locally and knows a lot of our players already and after a bad year with Toronto he’s looking forward to playing again and is excited by the challenge.”
