Lee Mossop is heading back to Wigan Warriors after a deal was struck last Friday.
The Evening Post revealed earlier this week how the prop looked set to be cutting short his NRL deal with the Parramatta Eels to return to Super League.
At first, it appeared Leeds Rhinos were in pole position to land his signature.
Wigan had first refusal on his signature, but with a cluster of front-rowers – boosted by last week’s capture of Huddersfield’s Larne Patrick – and little room under the salary cap, it was thought the Warriors would miss out.
But since then, interest from other clubs in Scott Taylor and Gil Dudson has grown and at least one may by heading out the exit – making way for Mossop to sign.
