Barrow Raiders prop Josh Johnson has returned to full-time rugby league after signing for Salford Red Devils until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old joined the Raiders in January after being released by Hull Kingston Rovers, with his deal coming with a clause that he would be allowed to move on.

Johnson will be available for Salford's Super League clash against Warrington Wolves on Friday night.

In a campaign where Barrow have often been beset with injuries, Johnson frequently played through the pain barrier in making 20 appearances during his six months with them and his departure is a big blow ahead of Sunday's home game against Leigh.
