Halifax back rower Luke Adamson has said he is “not far off” joining the steady stream of frontline players committing their long-term futures to the club.

Adamson, the former Salford player who played seven seasons of Super League with the Reds, linked up with Karl Harrison’s side in the spring after a six-month sabattical in rugby union with Bath.

The 25 year old’s initial short term deal expires at the end of the season, but after returning from a broken hand in the 35-16 win at Dewsbury on Sunday, Adamson confirmed that could soon be extended.

“We’re in negotiations, but we’re not far off at this moment,” he said.

“I would love to stay with the players we have got and the prospect of having the chance to go back into Super League at some point in the next couple of seasons.

“Karl’s building a strong squad and a squad he could take with him into that competition with him.

“I had only played six games before I broke my hand, so it was all pretty new to me and I didn’t want to rush into anything.

“But there’s a lot of talent here and it’s a good place to be at the moment.”
