Finn has left Championship side Featherstone and the 30-year-old joins for the start of the 2014 season.

"I'm flattered and extremely grateful that a great traditional club like Castleford, has given me the opportunity to play in Super League again," Finn told the club website.external-link

"He is an outstanding player," said head coach Daryl Powell.

"Liam has been a standout performer in the Championship for the last four seasons. I am supremely confident he will do well in Super League as a result of his professional attitude and skill sets."

Finn had a spell in Super League with rivals Wakefield Wildcats a decade ago, before going on to score 1,484 points in two spells at Featherstone.

"I didn't take my chance last time and it has been a long road back," Finn said. "I want to prove to the clubs, and to myself, that I am more than capable of being a quality Super League player."
