Newcastle have added another layer of talent to their outside backs, with Edrick Lee set to join the Knights on a three-year deal beginning next season.

Lee has played 83 games across seven seasons for Canberra and Cronulla, and has seven tries from 11 appearances for the Sharks so far in 2018.

The 25-year-old can play anywhere across the backline, and Newcastle's General Manager of Football Darren Mooney was thrilled to bring the talented Lee on board.

"Edrick is an exciting player with size, height and speed. He will be a great addition, not only to our backline but to our playing group," Mooney told newcastleknights.com.au.
