Salford Red Devils chief executive Martin Vickers has denied that captain Harrison Hansen and forward Cory Paterson are set to leave the club.

There were reports the pair would depart at the end of the season.

Ex-Wigan man Hansen, 29, was named skipper this term, while Paterson, 28, joined this year after quitting boxing.

"The reality is both Hansen and Paterson are contracted players for 2016 and we have had no formal offer for either player," said Vickers.

He told BBC Radio Manchester: "Both players remain firmly focussed on our crucial game against Leigh on Sunday.

"Tim Sheens and the coaching staff are making good progress in the building of a strong side for 2016 and, if there are any offers for such players at the end of the season, Tim will decide on such issues."
