The ex-NRL half-back makes the move on a one-year deal, having had his departure from the DW Stadium confirmed earlier last month.
The 25-year-old made 40 appearances for the club across a two-year spell, scoring six tries, but was limited to just 15 in 2023 due to injury and squad competition. He started in last season’s Challenge Cup triumph over Huddersfield Giants at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and was part of the squad that won this year’s League Leaders’ Shield and the Super League trophy.
Cust becomes Paul Rowley’s fifth new addition for 2024 and replaces Brodie Croft, who made the move to Leeds Rhinos alongside Salford team-mate and England international Andy Ackers ahead of next year.
He joins fellow ex-Wigan players Brad Singleton, Joe Burgess, Oliver Partington and Amir Bourouh at the Salford Stadium.
On the move, Cust said: “I am really looking forward to meeting everyone involved at the club.
“To the fans, I am a competitor who loves the game and can’t wait to represent you all.”
Head coach Rowley added: “We are really pleased to add Cade to our group.
“I have watched enough of him to confidently say there is a very talented rugby player who will thrive amongst this outstanding group of lads at Salford.
“After some good conversations with Cade, it is clear to me that his enthusiasm, determination, belief and good character are a great fit and addition to our group.
“Myself, Kurt and Krissy are delighted to commit to Cade and supporting him to be his absolute best.”
