Jodie Broughton makes Huddersfield move

Huddersfield have signed Salford winger Jodie Broughton on a four-year deal.

Broughton, 25, has scored 56 tries in 77 Super League appearances, and will join up with the Giants in early November.

He said: “I am absolutely delighted to be part of this club for the next four years. I had a few options on the table but I knew Huddersfield were the club for me. 

“Their vision for the future really excited me and I want to be playing play-off rugby and pushing for the England squad.  

“I think I’ll settle in nicely at the club and it will help me demonstrate my full potential which I don’t  think we have seen yet. I enjoyed my time at Salford, and will always be thankful for my time there, but now it’s time for a new chapter.”

Broughton came through the ranks at hometown club Leeds, but never managed a first team appearance, instead making his first team bow during a loan spell at Hull in 2008.

Giants Managing Director Richard Thewlis added: “The reality of our place in the pecking order for players so to speak is hugely different from that of a few years back.

“We have players and managers actively seeking us as they recognise that our environment, coaching team and squad is one that has every chance to challenge for honours which you imagine is what all players would want.”
