Broncos halfback Brodie Croft has his sights set abroad after inking a new deal to join Stalford in the Super League next year.

The Broncos had made it clear to Croft that they would not stand in the way if he wanted to explore options elsewhere, as part of a top-down overhaul of their roster at Red Hill.

The halfback still has a season remaining on his current three-year deal with Brisbane but it is understood negotiations could see the Broncos pay a portion of his 2022 salary with his new club.

"Brodie has a terrific work ethic and has given his all since arriving at the Broncos," Broncos football and performance director Ben Ikin said in a statement.



"Everyone at the club wishes Brodie and his young family all the best in the future.

"We have made some long-term decisions which have seen players move on, while others have extended or signed with the club for 2022 and beyond."

Croft's departure is the latest in a line of big-name offloads, including the likes of Matthew Lodge and Tevita Pangai Junior. His release frees up space in Brisbane's salary cap for next season.

Croft will play the final four games of the season at the Broncos but is no certainty to hold on to his starting spot.



Croft said he was "super excited about this opportunity to join the RedDevils" after consulting with coach Richard Marshall.

"Rich has been very thorough and bold with the ambitions going forward at the club and I cannot wait to get started.

"My partner Safina, son Haris and myself are looking forward to moving at the end of the year to begin this new journey together."
