He told the club website:I am happy to have signed, I have worked with John before and know him well, I am looking forward to getting started and rip into the new season.

“I had six good years at Salford but the time was right to leave, I have got to get back on the field week in, week out and reinvent myself.

“I like dancing on the pitch! I am a runner so hopefully that will result in a lot of tries this year.

“The facilities here are really good at Championship level, they are better than most Super League facilities, you have everything you need as a player.

“Bradford is a massive club that has had its ups and downs but coming into the Championship is a new challenge for me and I am looking forward to it.”
