The Newcastle Knights is pleased to announce the signing of 23-year-old outside back Jacob Gagan on a one-year contract.

Having spent the last three years at the Cronulla Sharks, Gagan has played seven NRL games and scored five tries.

In 2016 he played 23 reserve grade games for the Newtown Jets and established himself as one of the competition’s premier outside backs with 15 tries.

“Jacob is a talented young player that has been restricted from playing more NRL football due to an accomplished, premiership winning Sharks back line,” coach Nathan Brown said.

“He will add some really good depth to our outside backs.”

Gagan can play at either wing or centre, and has commenced pre-season training with the team.

“I’m looking to have a good pre-season and hopefully push for a spot next year,” he said.

“As soon as I found out I was coming to the Knights, I was excited.

“Everyone has been very welcoming, and I’m enjoying it so far.”
