IN-limbo former Leeds Rhinos centre Keith Senior has revealed he’d be interested in a move to Wakefield Wildcats following the collapse of his move to Crusaders.

Senior was due to link-up with the Welsh club on a two-year contract next season but is now looking for another new club following Crusaders’ decision to withdraw their application for a Super League licence.

His contract with Crusaders depended on them playing in the top-flight next season and he’s now back in the job market following Tuesday’s announcement of the 14 teams to compete in Super League for the next three years.

And a move to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium appeals to the 35-year-old.

“I know John Kear very well. John Kear has openly said that he’d be happy to have me,” he told talkSPORT.

“It would depend on John too because I think he’s out of contract at the end of the year and he’s got to think about his immediate future and secure his services to a club.

“If that happens then I’ll be speaking to them as well.”

Wakefield are expected to face competition for his signature but Wildcats could have the advantage thanks to Senior’s time working with Kear at Sheffield Eagles.

He’ll be looking to find a new club sooner rather than later and is hoping other players at Crusaders who will see their contracts come to an end do the same.

“It’s not been nice what’s happened to myself and all the squad of 25, the staff and the coaches,” he continued.

“It’s a little bit poor how they’ve [Crusaders] gone about things.”
