Bulls complete Krasniqi loan deal
Olsi Krasniqi has joined Bradford Bulls on a one-month loan deal from Championship rivals Toronto Wolfpack.
The 26-year-old prop forward has Super League experience having played for London Broncos and Salford Red Devils and Bulls coach John Kear believes he will be a valuable addition to his squad.
The Albanian-born forward is now in contention to make his Bulls debut when they make the short trip to Sheffield Eagles on Friday night looking to continue their 100 percent start to the new season.
“We obviously lost Ross (Peltier), Callum Bustin and Oliver Wilson in pre-season so when the opportunity came to move for Olsi we did so straight away,” said Kear.
“He is very athletic and very quick and with over 100 games in Super League under his belt, I think he will be a really good addition to the squad.
“Obviously he has experience at the higher level but he played in the Championship last season with Toronto and he knows how tough it is and what is required to win games in this division.
“He knows what it is like to play for a big team and be hunted when opposing teams play us it is a big occasion for them but he will be used to that.
“Ultimately it is to reinforce our squad and make sure we have the correct amount of players to cope with the demands of Championship rugby.
“I believe he will prove to be an invaluable addition to the squad and I am sure the fans will enjoy watching him play in the red, amber and black of Bradford.”
