Castleford insist Solomona is not for sale

Castleford Tigers have revealed that they have rejected three bids for winger Denny Solomona – including one from a rugby league side, adding that Super League’s top try-scorer is not for sale.

Speculation has linked the Tigers winger with a move away from the club for some time, with talk that he will be crossing codes and joining rugby union side Sale.

And Tigers chief executive Steve Gill told BBC Radio Leeds that the 22-year-old, who scored 42 tries in 2016, is simply not for sale.

“We have rebuffed three approaches for Denny, two from rugby union and one from rugby league. He is not for sale,” Gill said.

“We haven’t sold him and we’re not loaning him back like I’ve heard from some rumours.

“We expect Denny back in training on 7 November with the rest of the squad.”

Earlier this year, when asked about his future, Solomona said: “Nothing is set in stone but I’ve signed a contract for 2018 and that’s what I’ll do unless something else pops up and I’ll cross that bridge when it does.”
