The Bulldogs have continued their lucrative signing spree, securing Gold Coast flyer John Olive effective immediately.

The 21-year old winger inked a two-year deal beginning next week.

Olive made his debut for Souths as an 18-year old in 2018, before signing with the Titans, where he made a dozen appearances.

The Bulldogs, today announced the signing of Olive, who once played in their junior competition.

Gold Coast coach Garth Brennan spoke highly of the injury-riddled outside back.

“John has been offered an opportunity to return to his home city of Sydney and knowing how he feels when surrounded by family and friends, I didn’t want to stand in his way,” Brennan said.

“He’s still a young kid who could have a long career ahead of him. I wish him all the best for the future.”

Olive is Bulldogs’ second signing, in just several days, with Moses Suli agreeing to a three-year monster deal.
