Castleford have signed forward Matt Cook from relegated London Broncos on a two-year contract from next season.
Cook, 27, is moving north for the 2015 Super League campaign after making 22 appearances for the Broncos so far this season.
Tigers coach Daryl Powell told his club’s official website: "Matt Cook is a quality individual player. I have been hugely impressed with him this season as a performer and a leader throughout a tough season for London.
I'm looking forward to having room for my own game to improve, and I feel that I can only get better under Daryl Powell.
"His size and strength will be great for us next season and his ability to play in both front and back row is a great attribute."
Cook, who has previous experience with both Hull KR and Bradford Bulls, said: "I'm excited by how the Tigers are playing this season.
Heard good things
"I already know a few of the boys and I've heard nothing but good things about the place, the players and the coaches.
"I'm looking forward to having room for my own game to improve, and I feel that I can only get better under Daryl Powell.
"To be part of a club that is challenging for silverware and to be part of what they have built here will really be something special."
Cook is Castleford's fourth signing for next season following the captures of his current London team-mate Denny Solomona and Melbourne Storm duo Junior Moors and Ben Roberts.
