Wigan Warriors have signed 21-year-old centre Karl Pryce from Gloucester Rugby Union Club on a two-year deal.

Pryce has spent the last 12 months with the Guinness Premiership side after joining from Bradford Bulls and is now keen to make a return to Rugby League.

Karl scored 138 points in 52 appearances for Bradford including 17 tries in 25 appearances in 2005. He was also called into the Great Britain squad in 2006 before deciding to switch to Union.

The centre becomes the fourth signing for the Warriors for 2008 and will join the rest of the squad for pre-season training.

Warriors Chairman, Ian Lenagan, said: "Karl is another excellent addition to our squad and is probably the final piece in our jigsaw for 2008. He is young and English and is powerful, skilled and a try-scorer.

"He will add further quality to our back line for the season ahead. The fact that he has always been a Wigan supporter was a bonus in effecting the deal"

Pryce added: "I am delighted to be given the opportunity to join the Wigan Warriors and work again with Brian Noble. When I learned of their interest in me it was an easy decision to make. They have some quality players and I am really looking forward to being part of the club at this exciting time."

Noble said: "He is a player who I saw progress through the ranks at Bradford Bulls. He played a huge part in the club's Academy success in 2004 and then made an impact in the First Team.

"He has the attributes of both pace and power, he knows where the try line is and can play a number of positions in the back line. He is a really exciting prospect for Wigan."
