SAM Hopkins will join Leigh Centurions on a one-year full-time loan deal from Wigan Warriors from December.

Hopkins, aged 24, who graduated through the ranks of Leigh East before becoming a regular in the Centurions side, moved to Wigan at the end of last season.

He has played regularly for the Centurions this season on a loan deal.

Head coach Paul Rowley said: "I am delighted to add Sam to our squad as a permanent fixture in 2015.

"His experience this year with Wigan has accelerated his transition into a professional athlete after capturing him late from the community game.

"Sam is clearly happy and focused at Leigh and is very much a big part of our future. I would like to thank Wigan for their excellent communication and assistance throughout the process."
