Jordan Turner: joining St Helens on two-year contract

Turner, who can play in the centre and at loose forward, has agreed a two-year contract with the Langtree Park club.

"Jordan is one of the most exciting talents in the game at the moment and we are delighted to secure his services for the next two seasons," said St Helens chairman Eamonn McManus.

"Not only does he possess good feet and a great turn of pace, but he's matured into an excellent defender too.

"At 23 he is still developing and will no doubt do so further under the tutelage of Nathan Brown and his staff."

Turner is a former England Under-18 captain and has scored 35 tries in 100 Super League appearances.

He joined Hull from Salford City Reds in 2010.
