KYLE Amor has ended speculation over his immediate future by agreeing to stay at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats for the next two years.

The Cumbrian prop had been linked with a return to Leeds Rhinos at the end of this season as part of a unique clause in his contract with Wakefield.

Amor had agreed a three-year contract with Wildcats last year but could have opted for a return to his former club at the end of his first year if it suited all parties.

Instead, he’ll remain at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium for at least the next two seasons.

“I’m really looking forward to the next two years here,” he said.

“I’m still developing as a player and the last couple of seasons have been my first taste of getting regular game time in Super League and this year has been the most I’ve enjoyed any season I’ve ever played in.

“I enjoy coming into training every day and I know all the boys talk about it, but we really do all get on well and it’s a good place to be.”

The 25-year-old was a key cog in Wakefield’s successful season, making 23 appearances despite being sidelined with a hand injury early in the campaign.

He added: “The fans have been brilliant and as players we’ve all spoken about it. At home has been great but also at away games, there’s been times where we’ve had more fans than home teams.”

“The game that sticks in my mind is at Huddersfield where we started the good run of results, and our fans just overpowered theirs with the noise they created and the numbers that were there.

“That’s credit to everyone behind the scenes at the club but also credit to the supporters for turning up week-in, week-out and myself and all the boys are looking forward to that again next year.”
