Zak Hardaker future update

There has been speculation going round recently that Zak Hardaker would be leaving Wigan.

However, at a fans’ forum earlier in the week, Wigan General Manager Kris Radlinski dismissed the idea completely.

“There was a social media rumour that he met with Castleford. So, I went straight to the source. I spoke to Lee Radford. Lee Radford said to me directly, well, unless Zak’s in Spain because that’s where I am at the moment, I’ve not met with him,” Radlinski said.

“So, I went to the Castleford director, absolutely nothing in it and then I went to Zak directly and said, what’s this? Have you met with anybody, he said no, I’ve not met with anybody at all.”

Radlinski did explain that Hardaker has moved back to Yorkshire, though there have been travel issues incorporated in that.

“But you will have seen that Zak has moved back to Yorkshire. That is due to a rental house that he was renting, believe it or not from Joel Tomkins who he headbutted at Catalans, came to an end and Zak had to move back to Yorkshire.

“He has said to us that he is finding the travelling difficult which he would, we all know the M62, and his partner would like to move back to Yorkshire.”

The Warriors General Manager then went on to state that the club hold the cards in these discussions.

“This is a very live situation over the last week, with my last meeting with him this morning and we’re just talking it through. I made it very clear that everything’s on Wigan’s terms here.

“The Club and me personally have invested a hell of a lot of time into Zak and we gave him an opportunity when nobody else would. Laying it all on the table, that’s where we are at the moment in time. And it’s very live.”

    Why would Cas want someone who let them down so badly, especially when we have Evalds.
    Great player is Zak but too many issues.
    Good luck to him
