  • Shaun Wane welcomes third “new signing” to Wigan

  • Wane hails Greg Burke after year on-loan at Hull Kingston Rovers

  • “Greg looks in good shape, and he seems to be more mature than the player who left.” Wane

Shaun Wane says he has welcomed a third “new signing” to training this week.

Wane says Greg Burke has returned to the club a different player following a year away.

Burke spent the entire 2015 campaign on loan at Hull KR.

Wane has also signed Willie Isa and returning full-back Sam Tomkins ahead of the 2016 campaign.

Speaking to the Wigan Evening Post, Wane said: “Greg looks in good shape, and he seems to be more mature than the player who left.

“He’s a Wigan lad and going away to a new club, a new environment and having to make a new bunch of friends, it’s helped him.

“And of course he gained a lot of playing experience, and hopefully that will help him kick on.”

Burke burst onto the scene in the double-winning 2013 season and made 17 appearances.

But he found first-team chances limited the following year, and played just six times in a season which included a loan move to Bradford which was cut short by injury.

“I see him as a middle, and we want him to really challenge for a first-team place,” added Wane.
