Salford director of football Steve Simms, speaking to the Manchester Evening News, said: “We’ve been interested in Jodie for a while – he’s a player who has always impressed me.
“He has good pace and is an exciting winger. I spoke with his agent Frank Endacott last week who informed us a move for Jodie into rugby union would not be happening.
“We then lost no time making him an offer and are very pleased to have completed the deal.”
The 21-year-old has agreed a two-year deal and could make his Salford debut on December 27 when the Reds travel to Leigh for a pre-season friendly.
