Salford Red Devils captain Elijah Taylor reportedly wants big move as numerous Super League rivals circle

We have passed May 1 which means that players who are out of contract at the end of the season are able to negotiate with other clubs in a bid to secure their futures.

One of those out of contract and without a club for 2023 is Salford Red Devils captain Elijah Taylor, who has been a big hit at the AJ Bell Stadium since making the move from the NRL back in 2021.

The loose-forward has been linked with a move to Wakefield Trinity and head coach Willie Poching confirmed as much in his pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday’s game against the Red Devils.

“He is an international, he is experienced and someone of that quality will always be of interest to us if they can improve our group from within and on the playing field,” Poching told BBC Radio Leeds.

“It’s flattering that we have been linked with someone of that ilk as we don’t have many internationals in our squad but he has been great and he’s their captain.

However, The Mole at the Wide World of Sports has reported that Taylor is hankering after a return to the NRL.

“I feel I still have something to offer and would love to come back to the NRL,” Kiwi-born Taylor told The Mole.

The Mole also revealed that several Super League clubs have been circling the 32-year-old after such a good stint with Salford.
