Morley relishing Salford move

Adrian Morley cannot wait to begin his new career with the Salford Red Devils after finally joining his hometown club for the 2014 season.

The former Great Britain international has signed a one-year deal at the AJ Bell stadium following a successful spell with the Warrington Wolves.

Morley names the Leeds Rhinos, Sydney Roosters and Bradford Bulls among his former clubs, but playing for Salford is something he has always wanted to do.

The 36-year-old is excited about the club's future under owner Marwan Koukash and believes the signings of the likes of Rangi Chase and Harrison Hansen will help the club to the next level.

"It is really important for me to be back in Salford, as I have massive emotional ties to the area - I grew up 200 yards from the Willows and was a Junior Red Devil, so to finally pull the shirt on is a massive honour," Morley told the club's official website.

"The project at Salford was too good to turn down. It is all really exciting to be a part of. The sky is the limit, Dr Koukash has come in and made big promises - he has massive plans for the club.

"All of the new players are very talented, and it is great to get the chance to work with them - we should have excellent combinations all across the field, but I am particularly excited about Rangi Chase, having played with him before. He can create something out of nothing, and that will be vital when things are tough next season.

"I played under Brian Noble at Bradford Bulls and for England. He is a great bloke, who has the ability to balance hard work and fun in training. He is definitely the right man to move the club forward and achieve success."
