French-based stars Djamel Fakir and Duncan MacGillivray have agreed to join Super League strugglers Salford City Reds when their season ends next
Fakir, aged 21, is a French international forward and plays for UTC who are joining Super League in 2006.
Australian MacGillivray plays for Carcassonne who meet UTC in the two-legged French semi-finals over the next fortnight.
Steve Simms, the Salford boss, said: "We have been to France and been impressed by both players. If they avoid injuries we hope they will be over
after the French Grand Final on July 10."
