Foran and Eels deal not concrete

Rumours have begun circulating that Manly’s Kiwi test five-eighth may back out of the lucrative deal he signed with Parramatta earlier this year.

The news comes about just weeks after his Manly team-mate Daly Cherry-Evans turned his back on a deal he signed earlier in the year with the Gold Coast Titans to stay at Manly.

The rumours began on Monday morning when it was revealed that Parramatta officials were working on changing two clauses in the contract.

Parramatta released a statement addressing the rumours:

“The Eels have been working with the NRL and Kieran Foran’s management on two clauses within his contract that were previously undisclosed to the Board and senior football management.

The discussions have been productive and it is the club’s understanding that issues surrounding these clauses can be resolved.

The club is extremely disappointed that these confidential discussions have been made public.”
