Chris Tuson has decided against going through with his proposed move to Wakefield Trinity Wildcats and opted to join Hull FC instead.
The Wigan Warriors forward had agreed a two-year contract with Wakefield from next season but Wildcats said they would not hold the player to the deal in light of the club’s recent financial problems.
Wildcats were still keen on the player moving to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium for 2014 but chairman Michael Carter said: “He [Tuson] was sold a vision that now isn’t the same vision so if he didn’t want to come we wouldn’t hold him to it.”
Tuson has now penned a two-year deal with the Black and Whites and says the decision was a “no brainer”.
“I had a couple of options on the table, which included Wakefield who made me a very good offer,” he told the official Hull FC website. “But I think it is a no brainer for any player when a club like this comes along.”
Carter told the Express last week that if Tuson decided not to move to Wakefield the money would be invested into another player signing.
