Richie Myler has been unveiled as a Warrington player after the Wolves confirmed the scrum-half as one of three new signings for next season.
The highly-rated scrum-half has long been linked with a switch to the Halliwell Jones Stadium having rejected a contract extension from Salford.
The move was finally confimed on Sunday with the Reds getting a sizeable fee for the 19-year-old who joined from Widnes in 2008.
Warrington have also splashed the cash to secure the services of centre Ryan Atkins from Super League rivals Wakefield.
The combined outlay for the two England internationals is in excess of £300,000, with both players signing four-year deals until 2013.
Bradford's David Solomona will be the other fresh face with the Wolves, the experienced Samoan penning a one-year contract.
Wolves head coach Tony Smith admits he can't wait to work with the trio as the club look to build on this year's Challenge Cup success.
"I'm excited about coaching all three," said the former Leeds Rhinos boss.
"All have their own areas of uniqueness and will contribute to strengthening our squad. As individuals they are very, very good.
"Two of them (Richard and Ryan) have got youth on their side as well as some experience at the top level already.
"I am really looking forward to helping the two young guys to develop, mature, and progress, and I think they'll bring many assets and facets from their game that we probably need.
"David also has a wealth of experience. He is the type of player to have a huge impact on a game and can turn the whole face of a game. These are great attributes to bring in."
