St Helens have confirmed they have reached an agreement for James Graham to return to the club when the Super League season resumes.

Graham had announced on Monday he was to return to his boyhood club, having left them to move to the NRL in 2012 after making over 200 appearances for Saints.

He contested two NRL Grand Finals with Canterbury Bulldogs, losing both, before a move to St. George-Illawarra Dragons ahead of the 2018 season.

However, his time with the Dragons is poised to come to an end.

“Given the recent media speculation and interviews conducted in Australia, St. Helens R.F.C. can confirm it has reached an agreement with James Graham to return to his boyhood club for the remainder of the 2020 Betfred Super League season,” a St Helens statement read.

“The club hopes to have Graham in the squad in time for the resumption of the 2020 season, however this move is subject to formal paperwork being completed.

“A further announcement will be made in due course.”
