The Dyldam Parramatta Eels can confirm prop Lee Mossop has been granted a release from his contract with the Blue and Gold to join the Wigan Warriors, effective immediately.

Mossop joined the Eels in the 2014 pre-season, debuting for Parramatta in Round 13 in a gritty 18-16 win over the North Queensland Cowboys.

The Eels wish Lee all the best for his return to the English Super League.
