Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs young gun Moses Mbye will join the Wests Tigers from next season.

The 25-year-old has inked a four-year deal with the black, white and orange, beginning in 2019.

The deal sees Mbye reunited with his former Bulldogs teammates Josh Reynolds and Corey Thompson.

Mbye has played 92 NRL games in his career so far.

He debuted for the Dogs in 2014.

Wests Tigers coach Ivan Cleary said he was keen to start working with the versatile player, who has played fullback, five-eighth, halfback and centre in his career.

“Moses is a talented young man and we look forward to having him join Wests Tigers next season,” Cleary said.

“He’s developed into an exciting player and I know he’ll bring a lot to our club on and off the field.”

Wests Tigers chief executive Justin Pascoe also welcomed Mbye to the fold.

“Moses is an exciting addition to our playing squad and I look forward to having him at Wests Tigers for the coming four seasons,” he said.

“He’s an impressive young man and I’m sure he’ll quickly become a favourite with our members and fans.”

Mbye was released from his $2 million contract with the salary cap-affected Bulldogs. There were three years to run on his Canterbury deal.
