The Newcastle Knights have announced the signing of Aidan Guerra who will join the club next season on a three-year deal.

Guerra will join the Knights from the Sydney Roosters, where he has currently played 140 NRL matches since his debut in 2010.

The 29-year-old forward is a key signing for the Club.

“Aidan will be a great addition to our young side,” CEO Matt Gidley said this week.

“Aidan is a representative and premiership-winning player who will bring athleticism, experience and leadership to our team from a very successful career to date.”

While pleased with Guerra’s signing, recruitment remains ongoing at the Club.

“The Club will continue to monitor the player market and recruit players who can complement the emerging players in our roster,” Gidley added.
