Warrington have signed back-row forward Luis Johnson on a four-year deal from Castleford for a £45,000 transfer fee.

Johnson, 19, never played a first-team game for Castleford but has represented England up to under-19 level.

"We were attracted to him by his powerful attacking skills, along with his strong, aggressive defence," head coach Steve Price said.

"Luis will be a great addition to the 2018 squad and we still have the potential to bring in one more player."
