Championship club Barrow have signed France international full-back Morgan Escare on a short-term loan deal from Salford.
The 30-year-old is in line to make his debut for the Raiders in Sunday’s Championship clash with Batley.
Escare has yet to play for Salford in Super League this season, and has recently spent a two-week spell on loan with their Super League rivals Wakefield.
On his loan move to Barrow, Escare said: “I’ve been with Wakefield for the last two weeks, and I enjoyed playing games.
“This weekend, I’ve come to Barrow (and) I’m going to enjoy my time at the club.
“I watch all of the Barrow games, and they’re a very good team. I’ll give the best of myself to Barrow and enjoy the game.”
Escare’s move to the Raiders will see him link up with good friend and international team-mate Hakim Miloudi.
He added: “Hakim is a friend, and I’m going to enjoy playing with him on Sunday.”
