York City Knights have confirmed the signing of James Green from Bradford Bulls for the 2020 season.
Green has left amid the current situation at the Bulls, after a player was allegedly moving to terminate his contract after an error with the clubs workplace pension scheme.
And now, the Bulls will head for new ownership after Andrew Chalmers announced he would be stepping down upon the completion of the takeover.
Green will bring more Super League experience to the club, after previously playing for Castleford Tigers and Hull KR.
The forward joins Danny Washbrook in signing for the North Yorkshire side.
“James will strengthen our forward pack with his experience and metres,” Ford said.
“He has a strong carry in him and his off the ball efforts will help other players go forward. He has the potential to excite our fans.”
“I’m excited to work with James and facilitate his drive to get back to his very best.”
Green added: “I’m looking forward to getting started with a club that’s clearly going in the right direction on and off the field. It’s an exciting time for all involved and I can’t wait to be a part of that in 2020.
“Having met with Fordy and the plan he has laid out for next year made my decision to join the Knights an easy one. I can’t wait to get in for pre-season with everyone and begin that journey of hopefully taking the club one step further.”
