Canterbury Bulldogs prop and former St Helens star Luke Thompson has failed in his bid to secure a long-term at the club, with rivals now circling for the man mountain, the Daily Telegraph has reported.
Canterbury want Thompson to finish his contract – which runs until the end of 2023 – but the club is thought to be considering the potential of letting him leave early.
The Super League Grand Final winner still has two years left on his Bulldogs deal, but English-based agent Andy Clarke, has been contacting NRL clubs trying to gauge their interest in Thompson from 2024 – when he will be a free agent.
The Daily Telegraph has been told Wests Tigers are interested in the forward, who reportedly earns around $850,000 a season, with one more Sydney club said to be interested in Thompson.
The Merseysider made 163 appearances for St Helens before leaving for the NRL at the end of 2020 and has since played 26 games for Canterbury.
