Ryan Hampshire makes Wakefield u-turn

Ryan Hampshire has made a u-turn on his career and signed a new two-year deal with Wakefield.

At the end of the season, Trinity announced that Hampshire had left the club after the two parties couldn’t agree on a new deal for the off-contract playmaker.

But Hampshire has now committed his future to Wakefield, where he will remain until the end of 2021.

Wakefield chief executive, Michael Carter, said: “I am personally delighted that we have been able to agree a new two-year deal for Rocky.

“There has been too much written and said on social media by people who, quite frankly, should know better and have embarrassed themselves.

“Thankfully myself and Rocky have been able to continue dialogue like adults should, concluding in eventually agreeing a deal which satisfies both parties ambitions. What I am particularly pleased with is that this is a two-year deal showing the club’s commitment to Rocky and vice versa.

“Rocky had a good season last year, and I look forward to seeing him go from strength to strength over the next two years and hopefully beyond that. I always felt that Rocky didn’t want to leave, and likewise, I have never wanted to see him leave either.”
