Workington Town have signed prop Tom Walker from Warrington Wolves for the 2015 Championship season, although the Super League side have first option on his transfer once the deal ends.
Walker, 20, was with the Town academy before his switch to the Halliwell Jones Stadium in 2011.
He failed to make a Super League appearance for the Wolves, but did win the Under-20s Championship.
The front-rower was named in the England academy squad for 2013.
Town, coached by former St Helens full-back Phil Veivers - a former Salford head coach - have already signed Latu Fifita and Wigan's Jack Murphy.
