WIGAN forward Gareth Hock is on his way to Salford next season.

The newly-branded Red Devils unveiled 12 new signings for the 2014 Super League season including Hock, Adrian Morley and Kiwi-born England half-back Rangi Chase.

Hock, currently on-loan at Widnes Vikings, was due to join Lee Mossop in the departure lounge for Sydney to join the Parramatta Eels but turned his back on the deal last month.

Salford owner, Dr Marwan Koukash, denied any links with Hock to the Evening Post last month but it is understood the Red Devils have reached an agreement with Wigan to match the deal the Eels had with the Warriors.

Hock will be a Salford-contracted player and will be eligable to face Wigan next season.
