Hastings joined Manly-Warringah in 2017 in 2017, playing 13 games before joining the Super League.

The talented playmaker starred for Salford, taking the team to their first Super League Grand Final, and also claimed the Man of Steel Award.

Wests Tigers chief executive Justin Pascoe welcomed Hastings pending arrival and wished him well for the remainder of the 2021 Super League Season.

"On behalf of all at Wests Tigers I'd like to say how pleased we are to have secured Jackson for the coming two seasons," he said.

"Jackson's versatility and on-field ability will add a lot to our team in the coming years and we look forward to welcoming him to our club at the end of his current campaign with Wigan."

Coach Michael Maguire said the versatile playmaker would be a great addition to the squad.

"I'm really looking forward to welcoming Jackson to our squad in 2022," he said.

"Jackson's shown himself to be an extremely competitive player and someone who wants to prove himself in the NRL.

"We're looking forward to him adding to our club squad in the 2022 season and beyond."
