Bradford have made Salford utility back Lee Gaskell their fourth major signing for 2014.

The 22-year-old has spent most of the 2013 season on loan to the Reds from home-town club St Helens and has opted to join the Bulls on a two-year contract.

Bradford coach Francis Cummins, who has already signed Warrington prop Garreth Carvell and Huddersfield duo Luke George and Dale Ferguson for next season, is delighted to have secured the services of Gaskell.

“It’s great that Lee was really keen to come to Bradford when he had an offer from Salford to stay there,” Cummins said.

“When you’re stood next to Lee, he’s quite imposing and you can see the potential in him, which is great. His best years are ahead of him.”
