Barrow have announced that one of their star players is to leave the club to take up an opportunity in Super League.
The Raiders say that the departure of prop Josh Johnson is “impending” and that the former Huddersfield and Hull KR player will join Salford.
Their statement adds: “Josh was signed with a Super League release clause and it was always his ambition to return to full-time rugby league if the opportunity arose.
“Salford have offered him the chance to win a contract for next season, but, at the same, time there is a deal on the table from Barrow.
“Everyone at the club thanks him for his efforts this season and wish him every success for the future.”
