Wakefield have confirmed the signing of teenager Reece Lyne from Hull FC on a three-year contract.

Wildcats coach Richard Ager knows all about the 19-year-old having worked with him during his time with the Black and Whites.

The utility back made 14 appearances for the East Yorkshire club after making a try-scoring debut aged 17 against Salford.

Lyne, who can operate out wide or in the centres, is looking forward to playing for Wakefield from the 2013 season.

"I can't wait to get started," he told the club's official website.

"Wakefield is a club that is massively on the up and it's a really exciting opportunity for me to come and be part of that.

"Looking at the club as an outsider this year it's been obvious that it's a club going places and with a great spirit amongst the squad, particularly towards the back end of the year."

Potential

Agar is excited by Lyne's potential and is backing the youngster to develop in a quality Super League player.

"He's a player with outstanding potential and possesses raw speed," he commented.

"As a 16-year old there was every club in the country after him and at 19 he's already got a dozen first grade appearances to his name.

"He's a player for the future and I'm really pleased that we've been able to sign him. I'm confident that given the chance to develop he will become a top Super League player."
