Leigh have signed former Bulls player Michael Platt from Salford.

The 30-year-old centre, who made just three appearances in his second spell at Salford, has joined the Centurions initially on loan for the rest of the season but will take up a two-year contract from 2015.

Leigh coach Paul Rowley said: "We identified one area where we needed to add more competition and that was the centre berth. It's a difficult area to fill and has become something of a niche position in rugby league.

"In acquiring Michael's services we have someone who is renowned as a fantastic trainer and athlete. He will add strike power and competition to our edge."

Good signing for Leigh, always felt he could've still done a job at the Bulls though. Certainly always had the ability, just silly mistakes over the years let him down, but eradicated many of those in his final season or two and put in a high work rate. Game we couldn't get him back for us in the championship

One of the many that our coaching set up made into a worse player.
