Clinton eyes Broncos exit

Joel Clinton could be on his way out of Brisbane after club bosses declared they would not prevent him from leaving.

The 27-year-old prop, who won a premiership with Penrith in 2003, has reportedly recieved three separate offers from clubs in Superleague.

Clinton still has a year left to run on his contract with the Broncos but will look for an early exit following two unspectacular years with the club.

Brisbane Chief Executive Bruno Cullen has confirmed that he has been in talks with Clinton’s management with regard to a move away from the club.

He told the Sunday Telegraph: “I’ve spoken to Joel’s manager and he asked if Joel got a good deal going forward, would we consider letting him go.”

“We’ve said, like we have in the past with numerous players, that we’d certainly consider it. We don’t like holding people back.”

Clinton’s current deal sees him earn a hefty $275,000 a season and his departure would allow Brisbane significant room to move under the NRL‘s salay cap.
