LONDON, June 16 PA - Salford have announced the signing of out of favour Newcastle Knights NRL utility Michael Dobson on a four-year contract.

The 28-year-old Australian will return for a fourth stint in Super League in 2015 after previously making his mark with Catalan Dragons, Wigan and Hull KR.

"I'm really excited to be joining a great squad next season and I'm looking forward to a new challenge at the Devils," Dobson said.

Dobson is Salford's third confirmed major signing for 2015 following the capture of New Zealand Test fullback Kevin Locke and Leeds winger or fullback Ben Jones-Bishop.

Dobson burst onto the Super League scene in 2006 when, as a budding prospect at Canberra, he was loaned to the Catalans as a replacement for the injured Stacey Jones before securing a move to Wigan.

He returned to the Raiders in 2007 but enjoyed his best rugby league as a Hull KR player from 2008-13 and was named in the Super League Dream Team in 2009 and 2010. He also played for the Exiles against England last summer.

Dobson returned to Australia at the end of last season after clinching a 12-month contract with Newcastle but has struggled to force his way into the Knights team and was also thought to be wanted by Hull.
