Hooker Gareth Owen has become the third Salford player to join Championship Grand Final winners Sheffield Eagles on a season-long loan.
The 21-year-old, who has made 36 Super League appearances but is now the Red Devils' third-choice hooker, follows team-mates Will Hope and Jon Ford to Owlerton for 2014.
"I'm excited to be joining the Eagles," said Owen, who is set to make his debut against Swinton on Sunday. "They had a great season last year, winning the Championship for a second successive year and I hope I can help them defend the trophy again in 2014."
Defending champions Sheffield Eagles will be without Scotland second-rower Alex Szostak for the 2014 Championship season after he opted to concentrate on his day job as a genetic technologist at a children's hospital.
Szostak, 27, who will use the break to develop business interests in Lancashire and progress his career within the NHS, has made 148 appearances for the Eagles since joining them in 2008 and played in all three of their Championship Grand Finals.
He was in the Scotland team that reached the quarter-finals of the 2013 World Cup.
"I have had a fantastic time over the last five years playing for Sheffield Eagles and Scotland and I've decided the time is now right to take a break from rugby league and focus on other commitments," said Szostak, who will consider returning for the 2015 season.
"Winning back-to-back championship with the Eagles and representing Scotland against New Zealand in the quarter-finals of the World Cup was a great way to end 2013 and finish on a incredible high."
Former Great Britain centre Keith Senior is to return to Sheffield Eagles as part of the Championship's club back-room staff.
Senior, 37, who was a member of the Eagles side that beat Wigan in the 1998 Challenge Cup final at Wembley, will become one of two assistants to head coach Mark Aston, while maintaining his day-to-day role at the Leeds Rugby Foundation.
Senior, who played with Aston at Sheffield from 1995-99, hung up his boots in 2011 after becoming the first player to reach 500 appearances in Super League.
After months of turmoil it was announced last week that the Sheffield Eagles have found a new home. From next year they'll play at Owlerton Stadium after being made homeless following the impending demolition of the Don Valley Stadium.
It's a return home for the club who last year won rugby league's second tier, the Championship. Chris Dawkes has been speaking to the Eagles head coach Mark Aston.
The future of the Sheffield Eagles is in doubt after the decision to close the Don Valley Stadium. The team, which currently plays at the venue which shuts later this month - is now searching for a new home.
It's thought two options - Sheffield Hallam University's new sports complex - and the Owlerton Stadium - are currently not suitable - and it's feared the club could fold if a new ground can't be found.
Sheffield Eagles moved to the top of the Kingstone Press Championship thanks to a 38-22 win at Hunslet last night. Mark Aston's men moved above Halifax thanks to a six-try bonus-point win, with Meznie Yere and Quentin Lauulu-Togagae both scoring twice
It is the third round of rugby league's Challenge Cup this weekend and for one family from Sheffield it will be extra special.
Cory Aston, son of Sheffield Eagles head coach Mark Aston, will make his debut against Leigh East at the Don Valley stadium - 15 years after his dad was man of the match as the Eagles shocked the rugby league world beating Wigan in the Challenge Cup final.
