Salford Red Devils have confirmed the signing of Brisbane Broncos’ Daniel Vidot on a two-year deal.
The 25 year-old Samoa international can play both in the centres or on the wing.
Vidot has made over 100 appearances in the NRL for Canberra Raiders, St George Illawara and the Broncos, scoring 53 tries.
The six foot two inch utility man also has six tries in 10 appearances for his country.
Vidot follows the arrival of Justin Carney to boost the Devils’ back line for 2016, and head coach Ian Watson is excited about his new recruits: “We are delighted to have added both Justin Carney and now Daniel to our back line for next season in the last week and we are starting to look particularly strong in key areas,” he told the club’s website.
“Daniel will bring top class experience to us. He is used to a winning environment and his enthusiasm and keenness to get over with his new team have been great to see.”
Vidot, who played in last season’s World Club Series against Wigan, added: “A lot of talent has been recently recruited by the Club which I think will give Salford the edge. Finals footy for me is the goal for 2016 and I personally think that the Red Devils will be next season’s dark horses.
“I’m very excited to come to Super League and the UK. I’ve been to England a couple of times now and I love the atmosphere and culture displayed by the English locals and fans of rugby league.”
