Bradford have announced the signing of Warrington and England prop Garreth Carvell for 2014.

The 32-year-old former Leeds and Hull forward, who was in the Wolves team that beat Wigan last night, will join the Bulls on a two-year deal when his contract expires at the end of November.

Carvell, who has helped Warrington win the Challenge Cup three times in his five seasons at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, is a member of England coach Steve McNamara’s elite training squad and was 18th man for the recent win over the Exiles.

The capture of the vastly-experienced front rower comes just four days after the sale of unsettled second rower Elliott Whitehead to Catalan Dragons.
