Salford have signed former Hull KR winger Ken Sio from Newcastle Knights on a three-year deal.

Sio, 28, scored 26 tries for the Robins in 2015 and 2016 before returning to the NRL where he had previously made his name with Parramatta Eels.

Coach Ian Watson said: “We are delighted to add Ken to our team and would like to welcome his wife and children to Salford.

“This signing is an outstanding capture for the Club as Ken is a player who can play full-back, winger and centre and comes with great experience.

“Ken is a fantastic person with an excellent work ethic which is essential in our environment here at Salford Red Devils.

“His all-round ability and track record as a proven finisher in both the Super League and NRL will only add to our back line and help us build momentum as we head into the 2019 season.”

Sio scored 17 tries in 41 appearances for the Knights over the past two seasons.
