Salford City Reds have signed promising young French half-back Theo Fages on a two-and-a-half year deal.

The 16-year-old joins from French side Pia after reportedly being targeted by a number of other Super League sides.

Fages will initially play for the junior sides but will spend time training with the first-team.

"Theo is a very, very good player and we are looking forward to helping him fulfil his potential," said head of youth development Alan Hunte.
