Leigh scrum half Jamie Ellis is heading to Hull FC.
The 21 year old's signed a 2 year deal with the Black and Whites and will officially move to the KC Stadium at the end of the year.
Ellis is in stunning form and started his career at St Helens, learning from current Hull playmaker Sean Long before moving on to Leigh:
'They are a massive club with loads of potential,
'They are a big Super League club and I can't wait. This is an opportunity to show what I can do and prove exactly how good I can be with help from people like (coach) Richard Agar and Longy.''
Rather than holding Ellis back, current boss Ian Millward admits he was happy to see his star man decide his future lies elsewhere.
'Jamie has all the attributes in his game to be a top class Super League player.
'He has the potential to go on and enjoy representative honours.
'He has bags of potential and this is something I have discussed at length with Richard Agar. We weren't going to stand in his way.'
