Red Devils swoop for Bull's Kris Welham

Kris Welham signs for Salford

Salford Red Devils have announced the signing of former Bradford Bulls centre Kris Welham on a two-year contract.

Welham joins the club with a strong Super League pedigree having played over 190 games for Hull KR over a nine year period.

The Centre will be looking to recreate his form from 2016 in which he scored an impressive 29 tries in 30 appearances for the Bulls.

The unfortunate situation with Bradford means we have been able to benefit with a quality addition to an area where we were short. Kris has proven over the years he is a super league player with great ability. Everyone you speak to says he is a great guy with a good mentality so will fit well with what are creating here at Salford.

– Head Coach Ian Watson
