Crisis club Wakefield Trinity Wildcats forward Dale Ferguson has made a sudden departure to neighbours Huddersfield.

Just three days after scoring two tries in what proved his final game, Ferguson moves on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

He is the second key Wakefield player to leave in 24 hours, their delayed takeover having also seen them lose half-back Sam Obst to Hull on Monday.

But the club's administrators are now confident that Wakefield's takeover will be completed by Tuesday.

"We would like to conclude the sale as quickly as possible," said Simon Weir, spokesman for O'Hara and Company, the administrators in charge of the club.

"In the meantime, if an offer comes in for a player, it is difficult for the administrators to say no. Our duty is to the creditors."

It is thought that Huddersfield also made a bid to sign Wakefield's promising centre Aaron Murphy.

The Wildcats, who officially went into administration on Friday, thought they had gained new owners when agreement was reached for the club's purchase by local businessman Andrew Glover, acting on behalf of Spirit of 1873.

But talks to complete the deal have yet to be completed and O'Hara and Company are within their rights to sell assets in order to pay the creditors.
