Paul Gallen is open to finishing his playing career in Super League.
The Cronulla captain is off-contract at the Sharks at the end of 2017.
Gallen, currently in the UK for the World Club Challenge, said he is interested in having a spell in England next year.
“I wouldn’t rule (a Super League stint) out,” he told Rugby League Week.
“Obviously at my age, as long as I’m playing OK … I’ve got to see how the body pulls up at the end of each year.
“I’ve got a long year of NRL ahead of me so I’ll just wait and see but England is always a place I’ve really loved coming to.”
Gallen has spent his whole NRL career at Cronulla after joining from Parramatta as a junior.
The forward turns 36 in August.
