Kyle Wood rejoins Huddersfield


Huddersfield have completed a deal to bring Kyle Wood back to the club on a three-year deal from Super League rivals Wakefield.

The 24-year-old failed to make an impression at the Giants during a three-year stint from 2009 to 2011, but will now return after a short spell with the Wildcats.

Despite finding first-team starts hard to come by at Wakefield, Wood has impressed in a fringe role from the bench, prompting his former club to secure his signature.

The full-back will initially be on loan with the Giants for the remainder of this season before he begins his permanent contract from the 2014 season .

Huddersfield managing director Richard Thewlis expressed his delight at bringing Wood to the club.

"We are delighted to be able to bring forward the planned arrival of Kyle to the club," said Thewlis.

"Our long-term plan was always to strengthen the options in the halves and hooking area.

"With Kyle being out of contract at the end of this year it was natural that we would target him once the relevant deadlines had passed and we have known for a while that he would be a Giant next year."

Wood's return has meant that loanee Brad Dwyer has been sent back to Warrington.
