Warrington Wolves have signed Wigan back-row forward Daniel Bridge.

The 18-year-old joins for an undisclosed fee after the two club's agreed a compensation package.

Wolves' under-20s head coach Richard Marshall said: "We've been aware of Danny over the last couple of years and he's an exciting prospect.

"He's represented England and we are aware of his many capabilities. He'll complement the existing juniors and we look forward to working with him."

Bridge began his career at Waterhead before joining the Wigan academy in 2009.

He has played for the Warriors under-18 and under-20 academy sides and represented England at both under-15 and under-18 levels.

Speaking about the loss Wigan general manager Kris Radlinski said: "It is disappointing to be losing Danny from our squad but he has decided his future is elsewhere playing with his brother.

"Warrington have agreed to compensate Wigan according to the RFL guidelines and we thank Danny for his contribution over the last couple of years and wish him well for the future."
