Adam Sidlow: Swapping Salford for Bradford
Bradford have completed the signing of Salford prop Adam Sidlow on a two-year deal.
The 25-year-old becomes the fourth winter recruit for the Bulls, who are looking to rebuild after coming through their financial crisis last season, something that cost them the services of a number of players.
Salford, who are desperately seeking new investment as they battle against a winding-up petitition, agreed to release Sidlow from the 12 months left on his contract with them.
"I really enjoyed myself at Salford but this is a big step up in my eyes and I'm looking forward to the challenge here," said Sidlow.
"I'd like to thank Steve Simms and John Wilkinson at Salford because they have both been brilliant in letting me go.
"They said that if Bradford had a longer-term deal for me, then they would not stand in my way. I felt the security of being at Bradford for the next two years was a big step up for me."
Bulls coach Francis Cummins added: "Adam is a big lad. He can get forward and he's got a great offload as well so he brings another dimension to our attack.
"We've been trying to sign Adam for a while and it has taken some time but he's here now and I'm really pleased we've got our man."
