Salford have confirmed that former England centre Dan Sarginson has left the club with immediate effect.

Sarginson, 29, has been limited to just 29 appearances in just over three seasons at Salford.

His last outing came in the 50-10 win at Castleford back in August, one of five appearances he made in 2022.

The Red Devils tweeted: “Salford Red Devils can confirm that Dan Sarginson has left the club with immediate effect. We would like to thank Dan for his time at the club and wish him the best for the future.”

Salford coach Paul Rowley was asked about Sarginson’s absence in his weekly press conference earlier this week, and stated he was off through illness.

Rowley had previously confirmed back in January that Sarginson was out for an indefinite period.

Sarginson had been named in the England training squad in the build-up to the World Cup, but his 2022 season was disrupted by a fractured shoulder.

Born in Australia, Sarginson came through the ranks at Hemel Stags before moving on to London Broncos.

His form at the Broncos earned him a move to Wigan, where he won the 2016 Super League Grand Final.

A move to his native Australia followed, and he made six appearances in the NRL with Gold Coast Titans before returning to Wigan.

He was part of the England squads for the 2014 and 2016 Four Nations.

Sarginson moved on to Salford for the 2020 season, but was cruelly ruled out of their 2020 Challenge Cup final defeat to Leeds due to COVID-19.
