Wests Tigers star in shock ‘negotiations’ with ‘several’ Super League clubs

It’s that time of the year again when Super League clubs try and recruit for the following season after the May 1 deadline has been passed.

A number of Super League clubs are looking overseas in a bid to rejuvenate their current squads, with one Wests Tigers veteran on the list.

According to the Daily Telegraph, James Tamou is said to be ‘in negotiations with several overseas based outfits.’

Tamou, 33, has made almost 200 appearances in the NRL after spells at the North Queensland Cowboys, Penrith Panthers and currently the Tigers.

It remains to be seen which Super League club would declare their interest in the veteran as legendary agent Sam Ayoub declared a ‘feeding frenzy’ in recent weeks.

“Magic Round creates a great opportunity to do business with not only every NRL team in the same place at the same time but also people from all over the world coming for the event,” said leading Australian agent Sam Ayoub.

“There were a lot of meetings going on behind the scenes and I imagine lots of deals were being done.”

Ayoub revealed one of his clients was close to doing an English Super League deal.

“We potentially got a deal done there last weekend with one of our players,” Ayoub said.

“I think you will find most of the Australian agents were up in Brisbane getting business done too.”
