The Sydney Roosters have signed Bulldogs star Brett Morris on a two-year deal that will begin in 2019, as reported by Fox Sports.

The 31-year old nearly signed with the Dragons prior to the transfer deadline, but he will now officially be a Rooster until at least the end of the 2020 NRL season.

Morris departs Belmore after four seasons, playing 59 games and scoring 31 tries over that period.

It is a move that will further aid the Bulldogs’ salary clog after signing players to too many back-loaded contracts, while NSW prop David Klemmer is also rumoured to being shopped around, although the Bulldogs have denied those claims.

It caps off an exciting period for Sydney, who last week signed England veteran Ryan Hall to bolster the club’s backline depth.
