Rabbitohs utility Hymel Hunt.

Newcastle's off-season signing spree has continued with former Rabbitohs outside back Hymel Hunt joining the Knights on a one-year deal.

Hunt, who can play at centre or on the wing, follows Tim Glasby (Storm), Jesse Remien (Sharks), Edrick Lee (Sharks), Mason Lino (Warriors), Zac Woolford (Bulldogs) and James Gavet (Warriors) in signing for Newcastle ahead of the 2019 season.

After limited stints at the Gold Coast Titans and Melbourne Storm, the 24-year-old played 47 games in three seasons for South Sydney.

"Hymel's been in two good systems, in Melbourne and Souths," Knights coach Nathan Brown told newcastleknights.com.au.

"He brings great versatility. He's at home at wing or centre and can even play backrow.

"He's a nice addition to our squad."
