CONTRARY to rumours that have started to circulate of late, another departure from Warrington Wolves for Toby King is not on the cards.

Speculation had been growing that the centre could be on the move again despite The Wire opting to bring him back into the fold after 18 months out on loan, with a move to St Helens mooted.

However, club sources have told the Warrington Guardian that such rumours are without foundation and that King will remain with the club as planned.

The 27-year-old spent the 2023 season with Wigan Warriors to great effect, scoring 10 tries to help Matt Peet’s side lift the Super League title.

King was quoted mid-season as saying he would be keen to extend his time at the DW Stadium and it is believed an agreement was reached to facilitate that, but changes to the salary cap rules surrounding homegrown players meant Warrington chose to bring him back to The Halliwell Jones Stadium for 2024.

He has two years remaining on the four-year contract extension he penned with the club back in 2021.

Similar rumours have linked prop Sam Kasiano with a move to the Totally Wicked Stadium for next year, but the Guardian understands they too are wide of the mark and, as things stand, the New Zealander will remain a part of Sam Burgess’ squad for the new campaign.

The signing of Wigan hooker Sam Powell is expected to be confirmed in the coming weeks and once that deal is complete, there are not expected to be any further additions without some movement in the opposite direction.
