Leeds Rhinos have signed forward Jordan Thompson from Championship side Leigh Centurions until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old joined the Centurions on a two-year contract from Super League side Hull FC in October 2017.

Leigh owner Derek Beaumont said a "large number" of players would leave because of club financial difficulties.

"He's been a standout player this season and we have followed him closely for a couple of weeks," Leeds Rhinos director of rugby Kevin Sinfield said.

"We believe he will be a huge addition to our squad, until at least the end of the season."

With the Centurions unlikely to seal a Qualifiers spot, forward Bodene Thompson completed a move to Warrington Wolves on Wednesday.

In addition, full-back Peter Mata'utia joined Castleford Tigers and captain Harrison Hansen signed for Widnes Vikings earlier on Thursday.
