Salford have confirmed the signing of full-back Kevin Locke from the New Zealand Warriors on a three-year contract from next season.

Red Devils owner Marwan Koukash was delighted to announce the arrival of the 25-year-old Kiwi international as he continues to splash the cash in a bid for Super League supremacy.

Koukash said: "Kevin Locke is one of the most exciting talents in the game. Not only that but we have taken him from the NRL - something people kept telling me couldn't be done.

"This signing proves that we will be competitive at the very top of the sport.

Household name

"Kevin is one of two major signings we have made for 2015 this week and we will be releasing more information on the other later in the season."

"I have always made my intention clear that we will work tirelessly to make the Red Devils a household name in this country and beyond and signings of this calibre - along with the other names we already have at the club and in the pipeline will begin to make this a reality.

"Kevin is one of two major signings we have made for 2015 this week and we will be releasing more information on the other later in the season."

Red Devils head coach Iestyn Harris added: "There is no doubt in my mind that next year we will have the most exciting full-back in the competition.

"Anybody who has seen Kevin play will have seen how fast he is but his game is more than raw pace. He is a class act and he will light up Super League for at least the next three seasons, of that I am sure."

Locke featured in last year's World Cup final for New Zealand but missed the early stages of the NRL season with a knee injury and has failed to regain his place from former Wigan Warriors star Sam Tomkins.
