Bradford Bulls have signed Salford Red Devils winger Danny Williams on a one-month loan deal.

The 27-year-old has made the move in time to be considered by Bulls coach James Lowes for their First Utility Super League encounter against Catalan Dragons at Odsal on Sunday.

Williams, who has scored three tries in nine appearances for the Red Devils in 2014, is thrilled to have sealed a temporary move to the West Yorkshire club and is relishing the fight for a first-team place.

He said: "I am looking forward to making the most of this opportunity, Bradford is a big club and I am thankful to be a part of it.

"There is plenty of competition for places in the backline here, which can be only healthy for the club. So, if I train well, hopefully I will get the nod for this weekend.

"It looks as though I will be battling against my parent club as the Bulls fight for Super League survival.

"And as much as I want Salford to do well, I am a Bradford player now and I want to do my very best for the club."

Lowes added: "Danny is a very good player and he is a very experienced player. He will certainly add quality to the squad and we are very pleased the opportunity has come along.

"I am sure Danny can enhance what we have already got. It always helps to have competition for places, which is something we do not have enough of at the minute.

"He starts training in the morning, so we will see how he settles in and develops. He is very much in contention, though, for the game against Catalan - which is another big one for us."

Williams, capped twice by England in 2006, joined Salford in 2011 after stints with Leeds Rhinos, Castleford Tigers, Hull FC, Hull KR and rugby union side Newcastle Falcons.
