Dale Ferguson: Has signed a two-year contract with Bradford from 2014
Bradford have confirmed the signing of second-row forward Dale Ferguson from Huddersfield for next season.
The 25-year-old Scotland international has agreed terms on a two-year deal from 2014 and becomes the second high-profile recruit for the Bulls following the signing of England and Warrington prop Garreth Carvell.
Ferguson, whose Giants contract expires at the end of the season, scored two tries against the Bulls on Magic Weekend in May and will fill the role vacated by Elliott Whitehead.
Bulls coach Francis Cummins said: "After the developments with Elliott, I needed a back-rower and Dale was the man I wanted.
"He tends to go under the radar but he's consistent and has strike power as well, as he showed against us at the Magic Weekend.
"It's really pleasing that he's chosen us over other clubs, especially ones he is familiar with. He's heard about what is going on here and wants to be part of it."
Bradford chairman Omar Khan added: "Dale is an exciting signing for us.
"We faced opposition from several clubs for his signature but he was impressed with what Francis outlined to him and chose to come here."
