Could Warrington Wolves winger Josh Charnley move to this Super League club?

Josh Charnley will no longer be a Warrington Wolves player as head coach Daryl Powell confirmed today.

It will end a five-year affiliation with the club, with the fleet-footed winger making the move from rugby union to Warrington back in 2018.

Charnley, of course, began his career with Wigan Warriors before spending a two-year spell in rugby union from 2016. But where could his future lie now?

Could Charnley follow Tom Lineham across to Wakefield Trinity? With Tom Johnstone likely exiting Belle Vue, Trinity will be down a winger though youngster Lewis Murphy is slowly making his way to the first-team.

Aged 30, Charnley has a young family and so may not want to uproot to Yorkshire from his home in Lancashire, but he would be a brilliant asset to Wakefield going forward.

That being said, staying at his home in the North West may be Charnley’s number one option, so could he hang his hat at the AJ Bell Stadium?

Salford are building something exciting at the AJ Bell Stadium under Paul Rowley and signing the Warrington would be further evidence of that. Joe Burgess has rejuvenated himself since moving from Wigan Warriors and a new club could propel the 30-year-old into a new lease of life.

Of course, there is also the possibility that Charnley could end up being¬†one of Derek Beaumont’s marquee signings for Leigh Centurions – if, of course, the club do get promoted.

Located near Wigan so in close proximity to Charnley, it wouldn’t be that much of a big change for his family.

The winger is still Super League quality so a top flight move is likely to be his desired destination as well as staying in his locality.
