Salford agree fee for wantaway Bulls star

Salford City Reds have agreed a transfer fee with Bradford Bulls for unsettled second row forward Elliott Whitehead.

The 23-year-old has been in limbo since shocking the Bulls earlier this month by asking for a move, with coach Francis Cummins refusing to select him.

Salford owner Marwan Koukash says he has agreed a "substantial" fee with Bradford for the highly-rated Whitehead and is hoping to finalise a move in time for Friday's home game against St Helens.
