Gold Coast Titans coach Justin Holbrook has confirmed his interest in Manly playmaker Kieran Foran should he become available.
The Titans are struggling for form right now and face a battle to finish in the top eight and play finals just like in 2021.
Holbrook has been juggling with his halves combination in the early rounds of the competition and that has kicked off rumours
suggesting that Foran could be a target.
Doubts remain over the future of the 31-year-old following reports he may be squeezed ou of Brookvale because of salary cap issues.
It remains to be seen if that is the case but Holbrook has declared he would be interested if Foran was up for grabs. Speaking ahead of Saturday’s game against the Roosters he told reporters that Foran is a player he would like to sign.
There is talk that Foran will be handed a two-year deal worth $750,000. That is also more than he is picking up with the Sea Eagles.
Sea Eagles coach Des Hasler was coy about the rumours saying a pre-match press conference was not the time or place to discuss Foran’s future.
“As I said before that is a forum that we will just keep internal. We are working through that now,” he said.
Even so reports are claiming that Foran’s move to the Gold Coast will be announced sooner rather than later.
