Adrian Morley set to swap Warrington for Salford
Veteran England star Adrian Morley will join Salford ahead of the 2014 Super League season
Warrington Wolves prop Adrian Morley will join-up with former Great Britain manager Brian Noble next season at Salford - with the Reds looking to bring in more big names over the summer.
The 36-year-old, who will leave Warrington after seven years at the club, said it was a hard decision but he wants to end his career at his boyhood club - Salford.
"The decision to leave was not an easy one, but I am very proud of my Salford roots and felt the time was right to finish my career at the club I supported as a young boy," he told Sky Sports.
"I have had seven great years at Warrington and memories that will last a lifetime," said Morley, who was born in Salford. "Not only will I leave with winners medals but, more importantly, with friendships that will last forever.
"There is still a lot of rugby to be played and so I will be more determined than ever to make 2013 a memorable season for the Warrington Wolves."
Salford boss Noble is extremely pleased with the capture of Morley and expects him to set a good example to the rest of the squad, while his experience and class will bring a lot to the team it is his dedication to the game that stands out.
"Adrian Morley is an outstanding legend in the game and I am thrilled we have attracted a player of his standing to Salford for next season." Said Noble.
"He brings with him a great example culturally, he has a lot of juice left in the legs and he has an emotional attachment to Salford. Adrian plays to a very high standard and it is a bonus to the fans that he is one of their own.
"Adrian is both a world-class person and player. He is a great communicator and going forward he is a fantastic ambassador for the game, never mind Salford."
The Reds also confirmed the signing of Melbourne Storm's Kiwi centre Junior Sa'u just 24 hours before the Morley deal. Free spending owner Marwan Koukash has promised another six more high-profile arrivals before the 2014 season.
