Anthony Gelling has agreed a deal to join Warrington Wolves in 2020 according to The Sun.
The 28-year-old surprisingly signed for financially-stricken Widnes ahead of this season despite their relegation to the Championship.
But it seems Gelling will be back in Super League next season to link up with their Cheshire rivals.
In six years with Wigan, the maverick centre won the Super League Grand Final and World Club Challenge but returned to New Zealand in 2017.
However he only played eight times in the NRL for the Vodafone Warriors and agreed a deal with Widnes last year before their relegation.
Gelling was praised for honouring his contract with the Vikings but it seems that will only be for one year, with Warrington handing him a Super League lifeline.
He reportedly passed a medical at the Wolves training ground this week and will be a replacement for Ryan Atkins who has yet to sign a new deal.
