Salford have confirmed the signing of Wigan centre Dan Sarginson for the 2020 season.

Sarginson, 26, has made more than 120 appearances for the Warriors in two spells, either side of a year in the NRL with Gold Coast Titans.

He came through the ranks at London Broncos, and has also represented England three times.

Coach Ian Watson said: “Dan’s an absolutely outstanding signing for us. I think he’s been one of Wigan’s best players this year.

“His backfield returns have been second to none in the competition. He gets the team on the front foot.

“He’s tough, uncompromising and he’s an international. That’s the level of player we want to be bringing in at Salford, to keep us pushing at the top end of Super League.”

Sarginson added: “I’m really excited about my new challenge, heading over here.

“Even just looking around the ground today, I’m trying to come to terms with it all. It’s really exciting.

“There’s some quality players, and when I met Watto before I decided to sign for the club he told me about the type of expansive rugby he wants to play, getting me some early ball on the edges, which really suits my play.”
