Danny Williams: enjoyed a brief spell in rugby union with Newcastle Falcons
Danny Williams has committed his future to Salford by signing a new two-year contract with the Stobart Super League club.
The former Leeds winger returned to rugby league last year after a brief spell in rugby union with Newcastle Falcons and joined the City Reds for the last two months of the season.
"Danny's enjoying his footie," said coach Phil Veivers. "He likes the way we play our game. It's a bonus for us."
Williams is the first of a host of out-of-contract players to commit his future to Salford, though there will be some departures at the end of the season.
Full-back Luke Patten is definitely leaving having already announced he will hang up his boots and return home to Australia, while scrum-half Matty Smith has been strongly linked with a move to Wigan.
"There was interest but Salford have been good to me," Williams said of his new deal. "They gave me a chance when I came back to rugby league.
"I love Manchester, it's a great city, and it's a good opportunity to stay for two more years."
