The 20-year-old full-back or three-quarter, who came through Melbourne's youth system, was released from his contract with the Storm to enable him to make the move to Super League.

Broncos head coach Tony Rea said: "Denny is a talented individual who has been really brave in his decision to come here.

"He's been sitting behind Billy Slater as his understudy at Melbourne but has taken a decision to come here. This is a way of putting himself out on his own stage.

"He had a contract at Melbourne, which he left to join us, and had the full support of Melbourne and the Broncos to do that."

Solomona, who produced a series of impressive performances for Melbourne's Under-20s last season, is the Londoners' fourth signing for 2014, joining Tonga full-back Nesiasi Mataitonga, former St Helens hooker Scott Moore and Hull KR forward George Griffin.

The Broncos have also secured the loan services of Leeds youngsters James Duckworth, Thomas Minns and Alex Foster, who join the 12 players left from 2013 and take the Broncos' current squad up to 19 so far.
