It was reported that Wigan Warriors were interested in a sensational move for Canterbury Bulldogs prop and England international Luke Thompson.
Thompson won the Grand Final with St Helens in 2019 winning the Harry Sunderland Award as Man of the Match against Salford Red Devils and has starred for England since then.
There have been constant questions over whether he would return to Super League since his NRL move to Canterbury Bulldogs in 2020.
He was linked with a return to St Helens or a move to Leeds Rhinos or Warrington Wolves.
Now injured, more questions have been raised about his future in the NRL and Wigan have put in a huge offer according to the Mole who reported:
There has been talk lately that Leeds Rhinos could consider an offer for the prop as well.
When asked about the potential move to Wigan, Canterbury chief Phil Gould shot down the suggestion last week.
It is believed that his huge wage could be key in determining his future with the Bulldogs likely unable to keep paying him the $800,000.
It is now believed that he could have played his last game for the club.
This comes as Canterbury chief Phil Gould confirmed that he will likely not play in 2023.
He’s return to play this year looks highly unlikely at this stage. https://t.co/s8ncxq0zPf
