Johnson extends Salford stay

Salford Red Devils forward Josh Johnson has extended his stay at the club for the 2020 season.

Johnson joined the Reds from Barrow Raiders back in July and his new club have won every game in which he has featured.

Johnson said: “I’m buzzing about it. I’m glad the deal’s done and I can just focus on playing now.

“I’ve enjoyed working with Watto (Ian Watson) and getting to know the boys.

“We’ve gone on a bit of a winning streak and it’s great to be part of it.”

He added: “Watto’s given me belief that I can do it at the top level and I just want to keep training hard and playing well for him.

“I’m just going to keep working and I’m sure there’s plenty more to come.

“The squad’s looking good for next year, with some good signings coming in and lads who are going to step it up another level.”

He will be hoping to extend the Salford sides good run when they travel to Leeds Rhinos next Friday.
