Wakefield Trinity Wildcats chief executive James Elston says there is nothing in reports suggesting prop Kyle Amor is set for a move away from the club.

The Cumbrian has this week been linked with a move to Hull KR but Elston says Wakefield have not received a bid from the Robins for the player.

Amor, 26, signed a new two-year contract with Wildcats at the end of last season and has featured regularly in the red, white and blue in recent weeks.

And rather than sell the former Leeds Rhinos man, Elston says Wildcats are currently in talks to cement his future at the club with a new deal.

When asked whether there was anything in reports linking Amor to KR, Elston said: “There’s absolutely nothing at all.

“We haven’t received a bid from them for Kyle.

“We’re actually looking to do the exact opposite and we’re in talks with him over a new deal, so there’s nothing in that at all.”

Amor, who has started in Wakefield’s last six matches and is set to feature at Warrington on Saturday, is not the only Wildcats player who has been linked with a move to KR this season, with the Robins making offers for their former winger Ben Cockayne.

There has been no fresh approach for the player and Elston says Cockayne is happy at Wakefield.

“Hull KR looked at a player swap and then they offered a deal that we didn’t really entertain,” he said.

“Ben’s got another year so that’s where it is, it’s been done and dusted for now.”
