NRL club have been “looking for opportunities” for star player in Super League

There has been a lot of talk about Kyle Flanagan in recent days.

The halfback has previously been linked with a move to Hull FC and Leeds Rhinos.

Reports emerged on Saturday after he had been dropped by Canterbury Bulldogs coach Cameron Ciraldo that he was set to make an immediate transfer over to Manly Sea Eagles where his father Shane operates as assistant coach.

This was shut down by Ciraldo but the Daily Telegraph’s Phil Rothfield has stuck to his guns saying the deal will happen in the coming days.

He also revealed that Canterbury Bulldogs Chief Phil Gould has been trying to offload Flanagan to Super League since the start of 2023.

“Phil Gould has been openly looking for opportunities for Kyle in the English Super League since the beginning of the year,” he said.

“Kyle was a Trent Barrett signing and he’s struggled to make any impression at Canterbury … Kyle won’t be back in that team any time soon.

“He was really really unhappy about getting dropped but I think Cameron Ciraldo gave him the first eight or nine rounds he just wants to go in another direction there and it’s probably a move that sorts all parties. He’s probably not going to play a lot of first grade at Manly but they do need a halfback when Cherry-Evans is away.”
