KEANAN Brand's departure from Warrington Wolves has been officially confirmed.

The centre was under contract for the 2022 season but was not given a squad number, and now the club have confirmed his release to re-join Championship side Leigh Centurions.

Brand joined The Wire from neighbours Widnes Vikings ahead of the 2020 season, but made just three first-team appearances that year.

He then spent the entire 2021 campaign on loan at Leigh, for whom he scored one try in 12 Super League appearances.
