HUDDERSFIELD Giants have signed former Hull scrum-half Tommy Lee and let Kyle Wood join Wakefield for a second time.
Wood, 22, who first joined the Wildcats as a 17-year-old before going on to play for Doncaster, Sheffield and the Giants, is returning to the Wakefield club on a two-year deal.
Wood joined the Giants on a three-year contract in 2009, but found opportunities hard to come by with the presence of Kevin Brown, Luke Robinson and Danny Brough and is hoping for regular senior football.
"At Huddersfield they’ve got a lot of good international half-backs and it’s a matter of coming here and trying to get some more game time as long as I work and train hard," he said.
Wakefield coach Richard Agar said: "Kyle is a player who has been learning his craft from some very talented half-backs at the Giants and he now has the opportunity to use that experience to try and establish himself in Super League."
Giants head coach Nathan Brown is delighted with the acquisition of Lee and said: "Tommy will bring a lot of versatility to us and I see the same kind of potential in him that I did with the likes of Luke Robinson and Shaun Lunt when I first arrived at the club.
"They have all gone on to represent their country and while I wouldn’t want to put that sort of pressure onto Tommy, he has a similar kind of toughness and competitiveness that is needed.
"If he adapts to the training here and improves his game in some small areas then I think he will become a big addition to the club. He has played a lot of first grade for someone of his age, mainly at hooker, where he is very robust and physical in that position.
"The fact he started playing first grade at such a young age shows what a natural talent he is and we need to get that out of him on a consistent basis."
Lee was pleased to be joining the Giants and said: "I’m delighted to be signing for the club and to get the chance to play in a top four team, especially one coached by Nathan Brown."
