Keighran, 25, has made 26 appearances in the NRL, including two in 2022.
Meanwhile, Australian prop forward Kurt Dillon has joined French Elite 1 side Lezignan for the 2022/23 season. The 28-year-old has made five appearances in the NRL; four for Cronulla in 2018 and one for South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2020.
Latest target on Alex Chan's Dragons' dragnet seek-and-sign mission down under could be @sydneyroosters' 25-year-old utility back Adam Keighran I hear.
Just missed out on Tommy Talau could Keighran cut it as a Catalan?
