Leeds Rhinos forward Trent Merrin will now stay at the club, after previously being allowed to leave on compassionate grounds.
Merrin has signed a one year contract and will re-join his teammates in November.
“He is looking forward to getting back and is raring to go again,” director of rugby Kevin Sinfield said.
“During last season Trent had to return home to Australia for some personal family reasons and given those issues at the end of the season we gave him the opportunity to look to see if he could source a deal with a club closer to home,” Sinfield told the club website.
“He had our full support in doing this, but we knew there was also a strong part of him that wanted to come back.”
