Gateshead Thunder have signed versatile York City Knights half-back Paul Stamp for the remainder of the 2011 Championship One season.
Stamp, 22, has featured just twice in 2011 but made 19 appearances for the Knights last season as the club won promotion to the Championship.
"He is a natural leader, with a very strong kicking game," head coach Chris Hood told the club website.
"This also brings a greater ability to turn the ball over on our terms."
The former Hull FC under-20s player can also play at hooker or loose forward.
