Jayden Brailey took to Instagram to send a message to Newcastle and Cronulla supporters following the news of his signing with the Knights.
The hooker was released from the final year of his deal with the Sharks to join the Knights in 2020 on a three-year-deal.
It's a move the No.9 is keen to make.

Proud to announce that I’ll be joining the Newcastle Knights next year for the next 3 seasons! It’s been a tough year personally sorting out my future, and although I’m disappointed to be leaving my junior club, I’m excited by the next challenge and chapter that’s ahead. I’m incredibly grateful to @cronullasharks for the opportunity to do what I’ve always dreamt of, and getting me where I am today. I’ve got mates here that will last forever, and memories I’ll always cherish. I’ll never forget my debut for the club and the World Club Challenge I was lucky enough to be apart of back in 2017. Finally, Thankyou to my friends and family for always having my back, and also to the fans for all the kind messages. Once again, I’m really excited about the next opportunity to come in joining a strong club in the @nrlknights, but ready to rip in for the rest of the year with Cronulla and get back in the Finals! . Thanks guys 🤙🏼

Unfortunately this is the reality of professional sport and it’s never easy when you lose good people from your organisation. Looking forward to finishing the year off strong before you go. pic.twitter.com/2HfwS0fU9E
