Leigh have appealed for donations to help raise £15,000 in order to complete the signing of former Bradford player Gregg McNally.
The Bulls released McNally from the final year of his contract to allow him to care for his wife, who suffers from avascular necrosis, a crippling bone condition.
The full-back is a familiar face to Leigh fans, with him making almost 150 appearances for the Centurions between 2012 and 2017. The club have been on the lookout for a full-back for over a month, as revealed by their head coach, John Duffy.
Duffy said: “Now Gregg has become available due to his personal circumstances he would be a be a great fit for my style of play.
“I hope something can be done quickly as the season is fast approaching and Gregg needs to decide upon his future. Gregg is a very popular player with the Leigh Centurions fans and he cares deeply about the club.”
However, the Championship club face competition from other sides who are also looking to secure McNally’s signature.
