JORDAN BALDWINSON has left York City Knights to join Betfred Championship rivals Bradford Bulls on a two-year deal.

The prop has been at the Knights since early in the 2019 season, having joined on loan from Betfred Super League side Wakefield Trinity, helping the club secure a third-placed finish that year.

Baldwinson made the move to York permanent in the following season and has since been a regular feature of the club's front row.

The former Leeds Rhinos and New Zealand Warriors forward made 41 appearances in total for James Ford's side, scoring three tries.

The 26-year-old now moves to Bradford, who finished four places higher than York in fifth, but were knocked out of the play-offs at the weekend by Batley Bulldogs.

Baldwinson had a one-match loan spell at the Bulls earlier this year, in order to help the club fulfill a fixture against Halifax Panthers amid several coronavirus cases.

The move leaves York in need of reinforcements in the forwards, having seen Tim Spears, James Green, Danny Washbrook retire and Baldwinson and Sam Scott depart, with the latter also thought to be heading for Bradford.
