Five clubs approach Kangaroo Thurston

Australia half-back Johnathan Thurston has revealed that five clubs have already shown interest in signing him for 2011.

The North Queensland Cowboys star revealed to Australian magazine Rugby League World that former team Canterbury is one of the three NRL teams to have already approached him despite the 18 months he has left in Townsville. Two more suitors are from Super League.

“I come off-contact next year, but I’ve spoken to my manager about leaving all negotiations until the end of the season,” the Queensland Origin star told RLW.

“There has been a lot of interest, but I just want to concentrate on my footy and I’ve told the Cowboys I’ll leave all contract talk until then.

“I’ll just have to see what options are available and what one best suit me and my career.

“So if the best option for me is to leave the club, then I’ll be looking after myself and I’ll do that.

“But I’ve enjoyed my time here at the Cowboys and they’ll certainly be the first people I talk to.

“This is definitely the biggest deal of my career. I’ll be 27 next year, so I don’t think there so I don’t think there will be too many more contracts after this one and I want to make the most of it.”
