Chamberlain commits to Salford, joins London on loan

Winger Ed Chamberlain has agreed a two-year contract extension with Super League side Salford Red Devils.

The Ireland international will join Championship side London Broncos on a season-long loan deal with immediate effect, in order to benefit from regular first team action.

Chamberlain joined the Red Devils in 2018 after an initial loan spell from Widnes Vikings. He has since made 17 appearances for the club.

The 24-year-old was ruled out of almost the entire 2019 campaign through injury and joined the Broncos on loan in March to assist with his return to match fitness.

He then impressed on his return to Super League in October, with two tries in three appearances.

Reacting to the news, Chamberlain said: “I’m really looking forward to being back at the Broncos. It’s a good bunch of lads which I know are very welcoming. I’m now just looking forward to getting back playing and really looking forward to the new season.”

Salford Director of Rugby Ian Blease added: “We’ve been really impressed by Ed’s attitude, during a return to injury which was interrupted by the first lockdown.

“He showed great professionalism when called upon at the end of the season and proved what he can offer to the team.

“Our recruitment to the squad means there is even more competition in the outside backs now, making this the best way to ensure he has the consistency required to return to his best, while remaining in a fulltime environment.”
