WINGER Marika Koroibete will feature for the Melbourne Storm in the National Rugby League (NRL) competition for the rest of the season.

The Fiji Bati has confirmed the move from Wests Tigers.

The deal he signed links him with the Storm until the end of the 2016 season.

Together with Sisa Waqa, Koroibete is expected to spark the Storm backline which would also consist of Billy Slater.

Storm football manager Frank Ponissi told foxsports.com.au they saw the Namosi flyer as an exciting talent.

"An opportunity came up to bolster our depth to our outside backs and with limited chances at the Tigers this season, we saw Marika as an exciting talent who was coming off contract at the end of the season," he said.

"Marika has displayed outstanding form in the NSW Cup, he is the leading tryscorer of the competition with 15 and we see his signing as adding strength to our roster."

The 21-year-old scored 12 tries in 16 games in his season of competition two years ago.

He is expected to join the Storm training squad soon.
