Salford Red Devils coach Iestyn Harris has made former Bradford Bulls team-mate Michael Platt his second signing at the club.


The 30-year-old ex-Castleford Tigers centre or full-back joined Championship club North Wales Crusaders after being released by the Bulls at the end of last season but will make a return to the First Utility Super League with his home-town club after completing a successful trial period.


Harris said: "Michael is a player who I played with a Bradford so I have good first-hand knowledge of all of his attributes.


"He has an excellent Super League pedigree after spells with the Tigers and the Bulls. He is going to provide us with excellent cover in the back positions right across the squad."


Platt, who joined up with the Red Devils squad today, is Harris' second recruit following the arrival on loan of Wigan Warriors hooker Logan Tomkins.


Platt said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for me to the return to the club where I first started my rugby league career.


"There is such a great feeling about what is happening around the place and I am delighted to be part of what is going on."


Meanwhile, Salford have allowed centre Niall Evalds, 21, to join Championship club Barrow on a season-long loan.
