Leigh have announced the signing of Warrington centre Rhys Evans for the start of the 2018 season.
The 24-year-old, who has been ruled out for the rest of the current campaign with a shoulder injury, has agreed a three-year deal with the Centurions.
The signing continues Leigh's recruitment for next year, coming just a week after they announced the capture of former New Zealand international Bryson Goodwin.
Wales international Evans, who has scored 42 tries in 105 games for the Wolves, previously played eight times for Leigh during a dual-registration agreement in 2011.
Centurions head coach Neil Jukes said: "I worked with Rhys years ago and saw at first hand the qualities he had.
"Since then I have watched his career blossom at Warrington and, when the opportunity came to bring those qualities to Leigh Centurions, it was a no-brainer."
Bridgend-born Evans has been at Warrington since moving from Wales, along with twin brother Ben [now with London Broncos], to sign scholarship forms at the age of 14.
