Tom Burgess begins negotiations as he speaks about Super League move after Leeds Rhinos admission

Tom Burgess has reportedly begun negotiations with South Sydney Rabbitohs about extending his career there as he approaches the 250 appearance marker for the club.

This is according to the Sydney Morning Herald who are reporting that the Bunnies want to sign him onto a one year extension for the 2024 season but the player is pushing for a two year deal.

Meanwhile, the publication are reporting that Burgess is still keen on returning to England to play in Super League after emphasising a keenness to play for Leeds Rhinos having dreamt of playing for them in the past.

However, the alure of pushing for another NRL title over the next few years is keeping Bugress in Sydney.

“We’re in negotiations now, it’s getting there, I want to stay at Souths and I think we’ll come to an agreement,” Burgess told the Herald.

“I’d be happy with an extra two years, which would take me through to 33.

“I’m still feeling good. I got through most of last year, I had a little groin issue, but I had off-season surgery and now I’m feeling as good as I’ve ever felt going into a season.

“The World Cup was great for me and getting back to England. I hadn’t been back there for four years.

“Super League is something I’d look at, but I don’t think I’m ready just yet. I have a lot of things I want to accomplish with this team.”

So, Burgess could be headed to Super League but not any time soon.
