Reports in Australia suggest that Hull FC are interested in signing experienced Brisbane back-rower Alex Glenn.
The 30-year-old is off-contract at the end of the season and the Broncos may only be willing to offer him a one-year extension.
This will open the door for Super League suitors who will likely be able to table a long-term deal and the Airlie Birds have emerged as the favourites.
Glenn, who has spent his entire career with Brisbane, has played just short of 250 first grade games in the NRL and is still a regular starter.
He has also featured 12 times for New Zealand and started on the bench for the Kiwis in the 2013 World Cup final at Old Trafford.
Hull FC owner Adam Pearson recently revealed in an interview that the club are actively searching for new players with a large number of the current squad off contract.
This will open up the necessary funds to attract players of Glenn’s calibre, who is unlikely to be a marquee addition but will demand a top-level salary to make the move to Super League.
