Hull FC have announced that Jamie Thackray will sign for Leeds Rhinos from the start of the 2007 season.
An undisclosed fee has been agreed between the two clubs.
Hull FC Head Coach Peter Sharp said: ?Jamie has found it increasingly difficult to concentrate on his rugby whilst living in Hull.
?He has requested a move back to West Yorkshire to allow him to be closer to his family and to enable him to spend more time with his children. Hull FC have agreed to this request.?
