Elliott Whitehead will move from Bradford Bulls to Salford City Reds for a 'substantial fee'.

Whitehead has been placed on indefinite leave after he requested a transfer away from Bradford, despite signing a new five-year deal in March last year.

The 23-year-old has made 19 appearances this Super League season, scoring six tries in the process and joined the Bulls from West Bowling in 2005.

Hull FC were another club linked with signing the forward but with Salford's owners promising major changes to their squad, it seems that the Reds will be where Whitehead is playing next season.

He was placed on leave by Bulls head coach Francis Cummins after telling him he wanted to leave and join a "top-four club".

Whitehead has also played for the England Knights and he has emerged in recent times as a key player for the Bulls. Overall, he has scored 39 tries in his Bulls career, which he started in 2009.
