Myler agrees Rhinos switch from 2018

Updated: 

Richie Myler will make the switch from Catalans Dragons to Leeds Rhinos from next season, the Headingley outfit have confirmed.

Myler will swap Perpignan for Leeds ahead of the next Super League campaign after agreeing a three-year contract with the Rhinos.

"I am delighted to have signed for the Rhinos and can't wait to get started," Myler told the Rhinos' official website. "It is the perfect move for me.

"I had a number of chats with [coach] Brian McDermott about the direction the club is going in and his thought process about what I could offer to the Rhinos. 

"It was important to know the way the team is going and that Brian wanted me as part of that. It was really appealing to me and the best fit for me as a player. 

"Leeds is a big club and a club that is always fighting for silverware and at the top of the league. It is now the right time for us to move home to England and this was the best opportunity for me.

"This was the one that I was really excited about and when the chance came to join the Rhinos it was too good an opportunity to turn down."

Since making his debut for Widnes Vikings in 2007, Myler has also represented Salford City Reds and Warrington Wolves, making the move to Catalans in 2016.
