Catalans Dragons have signed Warrington half-back Richie Myler on a two-year contract from the start of next season.

The 25-year-old has made 141 Super League appearances and scored 87 tries, winning two Challenge Cup winners' medals with the Wolves.

Myler signed for Salford on a three-year deal in 2008 and helped them win the National League One title, scoring 25 tries in 32 appearances in his first season on his way to claiming the Co-Operative Player of the Year award.

He subsequently joined Warrington on a four-year contract in 2010, becoming the most expensive teenage signing in rugby league history.

Myler has also notched up seven tries in six games for England and is delighted to have secured a move to Perpignan.
