Platt, 30, started his career with Salford back in 2001, and had spells with Rochdale and Castleford before joining the Bulls in 2007, where he went on to make 143 appearances.

He said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for me to the return to the club where I first started my rugby league career.

“There is such a great feeling about what is happening around the place and I am delighted to be part of what is going on.”

Platt had started the season with Championship side North Wales Crusaders, although injury had limited his appearances.

He is a former team-mate of recently appointed Salford head coach Iestyn Harris.

Harris said: “Michael is a player who I played with a Bradford so I have good first-hand knowledge of all of his attributes.

“He has an excellent Super League pedigree after spells with the Tigers and the Bulls.

“He is going to provide us with excellent cover in the back positions right across the squad and we are looking forward to him joining up with the rest of the squad.”
