YORK City Knights winger Ben Jones-Bishop has left the club to join fellow Betfred Championship side Sheffield Eagles on a one-year deal.

Jones-Bishop joined York from Betfred Super League club Wakefield Trinity ahead of the 2021 season and featured regularly for the the Knights on the wing, at full-back and even, on one occasion, in the halves.

The Jamaica international made 19 appearances for James Ford's side last season, scoring eight tries.

Jones-Bishop now joins fellow York outside back Jason Bass in making the move to the South Yorkshire club for the 2022 season.

Speaking about the move, the former Leeds Rhinos and Salford Red Devils man told the Sheffield Eagles website: "I am very excited.

“It’s an exciting year as we move to the OLP (Olympic Legacy Park) and I am looking forward to working with the boys and the coaching staff.

“It’s quite a late move as I got a text from (Sheffield forward) Joel Farrell asking if I had signed anywhere yet.

“I was in conversation with clubs elsewhere, the next day I had an offer from the Eagles and the day after I met (head coach) Mark (Aston) and we spoke for around three hours.

“One of the big reasons I am at the club is a bit of familiarity.

“They are the players I know.

"I know how passionate Faz is and it’s brilliant to have him on your team.

“I am also familiar with the city as I studied at Sheffield Hallam University for four years.

“It’s great to be back here.

"The club is going into the new stadium and it’s great to be a part of the plans for the next year.

“Hopefully we can have a great season and enjoy our new home.”
