Manly have officially confirmed the signing of Dylan Walker from South Sydney with the Test representative inking a four-year contract with the NRL club.
Walker has been training with the Sea Eagles for the last month and the club finally announced the deal in a statement released in the early hours of Thursday morning.
The 21-year-old, who won the 2014 premiership with the Rabbitohs playing at centre, said he’s targeting the five-eighth spot vacated by Kieran Foran’s move to Parramatta.
“I would love to play six alongside Daly Cherry-Evans and inside both Steve Matai and Jamie Lyon,” Walker said.
“Five-eighth was my favourite position coming through the juniors and if the coach wants me there I will jump at the opportunity.
“I’m excited to be at such a great club once I was moving from Souths, the Sea Eagles was my first and only priority.
“I’m delighted I am now a Sea Eagle.”
