Castleford has revealed they have accepted a settlement “in excess of £200,000” and ended their legal action against their former winger Denny Solomona, Sale Sharks and agent Andrew Clarke.
The 23-year-old ‘retired’ from rugby league to join rugby union club Sale on a three-year deal in December 2016.
The Tigers were seeking £500,000 for Solomona’s transfer, as he was contracted to them until 2018.
A statement from Tigers said: “Castleford Tigers believe the correct decision was made to bring this matter to a conclusion now.
“It not only means they are in pocket for a substantial sum of money, but the case has clearly proved that it is impermissible for a player to walk out on his contract without suffering a harsh financial penalty.”
