Salford City Reds half-back Liam Foran has left the club just six-months after arriving in the Super League, but insists that they are heading in the right direction.

Foran, brother of New Zealand international Kieran, struggled to break into Salford's first-team following his move from Manly Sea Eagles at the start of 2013, managing just 17 appearances.

Following the club's recent influx of new recruits, it is understood the player is now surplus to requirements.

Speaking with the Manchester Evening News, he said: "I really wanted to play three years in England but it's not to be.

"To have done so would have been good and what I have experienced has been great and very beneficial.

"It will take a while for Salford to fulfil their ambitions but they are heading in the right direction. I am sure they will get there. They are bringing in some good experienced talent but I have to accept what has happened to me and move on."

Salford's wealthy owner Marwan Koukash has recently signed winger Francis Meli, 34, from St Helens and the 36-year-old Adrian Morley from Warrington, both on a one-year deal.

The revamping of the squad is set to continue with coach Brian Noble understood to be interested in bringing in veteran full-back Paul Wellens from Saints.

Unfortunately, this has meant the end for the 25-year-old Foran, who is now expected to join back up with his former club Manly Sea Eagles.

"I am looking at going back into the NRL - I know I can go well at this level having done so in the past. Manly is a great club to be part of."
