Salford sign Costello on 3-year deal

Salford Red Devils have confirmed the signing of centre Matty Costello from the 2021 season.

The 22-year-old arrives from St Helens on a three-year contract, and will work with Head Coach Richard Marshall again, after working together at the Saints, where Marshall was an assistant.

Costello said: “I’m pleased to be joining up with Rich again. He did a lot with me at St Helens and brought us on there. We had a meeting now we’ve both joined Salford and I’m sure he’ll be looking to do the same here.

“There’s a lot of players with international experience in the backs as well, so I’m sure I will learn from how they train and play too.

“I’ve always enjoyed playing against Salford. They’ve been tight games where the crowd has been really loud, so I can’t wait to experience more of that next season.”

Marshall added: “Having worked with Matty a lot over the last two years, I’m really pleased to be working with him again.

“His versatility makes him a valuable asset for the squad and he showed what he is already capable of with some impressive performances this season.

“This is a new challenge for him, so he will have to knuckle down in preseason and force his way into an established backline.”
