Yates extends Salford deal

Salford Red Devils forward Luke Yates has signed a new two-year contract extension to remain at the club.

This follows from yesterday’s announcement that Lee Mossop has also signed a new two-year contract.

Yates had started the new season well, and was in the top ten tackle makers in the Super League. He signed from London Broncos ahead of the 2020 season.

He said: “I really believe in Watto (Ian Watson) and the club’s vision and I’m grateful for the opportunity to be a part of their success going forward.

“Once I got here, we started talking pretty early about extending my stay and the consistency this brings should help me perform at my best.

“It’s great to have Moose staying throughout that time too. He’s massive in the middle and has been dominant in the front-row for a long time.

“Now we can progress our relationship in the pack together, as I establish myself as a leader.”

Head Coach Watson added: “Luke is an important signing for us.

“I’m sure everyone has already seen the work ethic and passion that Luke’s displayed this season and he’ll only get better over the next couple of seasons.

“I’m really happy that we’ve secured his services and I have the opportunity to work with Luke going forward, as his energy is infectious and over the next few years I’m sure he’ll grow into a strong leader within our team.”
