Wakefield have headed off interest from Stobart Super League rivals Hull FC by signing prop Kyle Amor on a two-year contract.
The 25-year-old Ireland international had been on loan at the Wildcats from Leeds for the past two seasons with Wakefield having the option to sign him for 2013.
Hull were also thought to be interested but he will now remain with the Wildcats until at least the end of 2014.
"We're delighted that Kyle is staying with us," Wakefield coach Richard Agar said.
"As the season has progressed he has got stronger and developed his all-round game. He's got a real desire to keep pushing forward and we hope he can continue to develop with us in the next couple of years."
