Bradford Bulls have signed Tonga international Etu Uaisele on a two-year deal from the 2015 season.
Uaisele, 29, can play at centre and on the wing and he scored three tries for his nation during the 2008 World Cup.
He started his career in the NRL and had spells with the Parramatta Eels and Penrith Panthers, but is currently plying his trade with Kingstone Press Championship Sheffield Eagles on loan from Featherstone.
I grew up watching the likes of Lesley Vainikolo, he was unreal for Bradford, and just cannot wait to get started and have a good spell here.
Bulls coach James Lowes is excited to welcome Uaisele to the club after confirming his fourth signing for next season.
"Etu is extremely talented and we are looking forward to having him on board for the next couple of years," said Lowes.
"We have done our research on him and are pleased with what we have seen.
"It is great to have him on board, as he is very dangerous with the ball. He is fast and has great feet.
"He certainly knows his way to the line and I look forward to seeing him finishing opportunities in a Bradford Bulls shirt next year."
Uaisele added: "I see coming to play for the Bulls as a massive chance for me.
"I grew up watching the likes of Lesley Vainikolo, he was unreal for Bradford, and just cannot wait to get started and have a good spell here."
