"When the opportunity came up to come back to this great club I took it with both hands, I wasn't going to let this opportunity slip away from me.
"It's like coming back home for me, I love the people here. This move is purely about the badge and the way it made me feel when I played for it."
New Zealand-born Chase won the 2011 Man of Steel while at Castleford, also earning his 11 England caps during a four-year stay.
