Salford have announced the signing of Daniel Vidot from Brisbane Broncos on a two-year contract.
The versatile Samoa international, who can play in at centre or out wide, will link up with his new team-mates for the 2016/17 season.
The capture of the powerful 25-year-old continues Salford's rebuilding for next term, with the likes of Justin Carney, Mark Flanagan, Robert Lui and Ben Murdoch-Masila having already been brought in.
Salford head coach Ian Watson added: "We are delighted to have added both Justin Carney and now Daniel to our back line for next season in the last week and we are starting to look particularly strong in key areas."
Vidot joined Brisbane at the end of the 2013 campaign having previously played for NRL sides St George Illawarra and Canberra Raiders, with whom he finished the 2010 season as top try scorer.
Watson added: "Daniel will bring top class experience to us. He is used to a winning environment and his enthusiasm and keenness to get over with his new team have been great to see."
Vidot believes new-look Salford will be the "dark horses" of next season's Super League.
He said: "A lot of talent has been recently recruited by the club which I think will give Salford the edge. Finals footy for me is the goal for 2016 and I personally think that the Red Devils will be next season's dark horses.
"I'm very excited to come to Super League and the UK. I've been to England a couple of times now and I love the atmosphere and culture displayed by the English locals and fans of rugby league."
