Wakefield have brought in Warrington winger Kevin Penny on a two-year deal.

Penny, who made his Super League debut in 2006, is a replacement for Catalans-bound Damien Blanch.

Wildcats coach John Kear said: "Kevin is blessed with real pace and as Damien Blanch has moved on we need a main strike player.

"Kevin is 23-years-old and fits our policy we've adopted of signing young British players who have something to prove and the hunger to do well."

Kear added: "He is an exciting player who has already proved that he can score tries at the highest level of the British game and we believe he can become a real favourite with our fans."

Penny was brought into the England squad in 2007 and was named as a member of the Super League dream team alongside former Wildcats skipper Jason Demetriou and Wakefield's Australian back-row forward Glenn Morrison, then with the Bradford Bulls.

Penny is Wakefield's fourth signing in just three days following the capture of Featherstone's Jessie Joe Parker, Salford half-back Jeremy Smith and Hull KR back rower Frankie Mariano.
