Permanent deal: Kyle Amor has joined Wakefield from Leeds

Prop Kyle Amor has signed a three-year contract with Wakefield, with whom he spent the whole of the 2011 season on loan from Leeds.

However, the Rhinos have retained an option to re-sign the 24-year-old Cumbrian after 12 months.

Amor, who made his Wildcats debut against Salford in February and went on to play in all 27 matches, including two against the Rhinos, had a year left on his contract at Headingley.

Leeds chief executive Gary Hetherington said: 'We bought Kyle from Whitehaven to be a Rhinos player in the future and this season he has gained valuable experience at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, where he has established himself as a formidable forward.

'We could have brought him back for next season to compete with our current crop of props but we think it's in everyone's best interests for him to continue his development at Wakefield and we will take a view mid-way through next season.'

Amor said: 'I'm very pleased with the deal. I love it at the Rhinos and have also enjoyed and benefited from my time at Wakefield and I want to continue playing Super League every week to fulfil my potential.

'Next season, I will be totally focussed on Wakefield Trinity Wildcats and the future will then take care of itself.'
