Castleford Tigers fullback Calum Turner has been linked with a move to League 1 club Newcastle Thunder.

Turner is off-contract at Castleford at the end of this year.

Everything Rugby League understands Newcastle are keen to snap up the young fullback.

The 23-year-old made his Super League debut in 2018 against Hull FC but has found first-team appearances rare with the Tigers.

Turner has played just 10 games for Castleford, scoring three tries. Last year he was loaned to Featherstone Rovers and scored twice in eight games.

This year the outside back, who can also feature on the wing, has played twice, crossing for a single try.

Turner is a product of the Lock Lane junior club and came through the Tigers academy.

It is believed the Thunder want to sign the fullback up on a one-year deal.

Newcastle are looking to recruit after a number of their players have left to sign with other clubs.

Sam Luckley has signed with Ottawa Aces, while Quentin Laulu Togaga’e is off to Keighley.
