Wakefield have signed young Hull winger Reece Lyne on a three-year deal.
Lyne, 19, worked under Wildcats boss Richard Agar at the KC Stadium, who handed him his debut as a 17-year-old back in March 2010.
He said: “I can’t wait to get started.
“Wakefield is a club that is massively on the up and it’s a really exciting opportunity for me to come and be part of that.
“Looking at the club as an outsider this year it’s been obvious that it’s a club going places and with a great spirit amongst the squad, particularly towards the back end of the year.”
Lyne went on to make 14 appearances for the Black and Whites, but was limited to just one game in 2012 – the Challenge Cup defeat to Huddersfield where he played full back.
Agar added: “He’s a player with outstanding potential and possesses raw speed.
“As a 16-year old there was every club in the country after him and at 19 he’s already got a dozen first grade appearances to his name.
“He’s a player for the future and I’m really pleased that we’ve been able to sign him. I’m confident that given the chance to develop he will become a top Super League player.”
