Ryan Lannon makes permanent Salford return

Salford have signed Ryan Lannon from Hull KR on a permanent deal, after ending the season on loan at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Lannon, 23, rejoined the Red Devils midway through the campaign which saw Daniel Murray go in the opposite direction.

He said: “It’s great to be back here, because this is where I thought I was playing my best rugby, before I left.

“It was great to be around the boys again when I came back this year, so it was no-brainer to come back permanently.

“I’m confident when I play here and I have a good relationship with all the fans.

“When I came back, they made me feel welcome. It was like I’d never been away.”

The back-rower made his senior debut for the club back in 2015 and has made more than 60 appearances.

Coach Ian Watson said: “I’m happy that we’ve been able to bring Ryan back to Salford.

“The club has been a big part of Lannon’s rugby career and where I believe he’s been happiest, which shows in his performances on the field.

“Lannon has a very bright future in the game and this year, I believe we’ll see him improve even further.

“On the field, he’s a player who opens up opposition defences and is a physically tough defender. which will add to our squad.”
