Salford have signed Wigan back-rower Harrison Hansen for an undisclosed fee.
Hansen told the club’s official website: “Marwan has been awesome and is the reason I am here signing for Salford today. I grew up and played for Folly and people always asked me if I would like to come back and play here. I always said it was something I wanted to do but the time had to be right and I feel now as though it is.
“I have signed a four-year deal and am really excited to be here right at the beginning of this special time for the Red Devils. There is a huge amount of excitement around what is happening here and I know the fans will come out and back us when we get out there in February.
“For me it is a great new challenge. I have achieved everything I could at Wigan and had a great time there. I’m not just coming to Salford for an easy ride. I have a set of standards and I constantly set myself the task of living up to them. There is a great bunch of players here, I know many of them already. The facilities now are second to none. This is the place to be.”
Harrison’s father Shane played for Salford in the 1980s.
