The 30-year-old winger is actually set to stay at the Tigers, according to Yorkshire Live. Eden has made almost 200 career appearances for Huddersfield, Hull KR, Salford, Brisbane Broncos and Castleford.

Salford gig

It seems as though Paul Rowley remains the frontrunner for the head coaching vacancy at Salford. The former Leigh and Toronto Wolfpack boss has been on the backroom staff at the Red Devils for a couple of years now.

There is speculation that Rowley will be the club’s head coach in 2022, with Danny Orr and Kurt Haggerty as his assistants.

Leigh splash the cash

Relegated Super League club Leigh are very busy in the recruitment department right now. This week, the Centurions have confirmed the signings of promising Jayden Hatton (Widnes) and Tom Nisbet (St Helens) for their return to the Championship.

Former Hull KR half-back Adam Quinlan is attracting interest from Leigh, according to the Hull Daily Mail. The 28-year-old left Hull KR upon the expiry of his contract at the end of the campaign.

In addition, Manchester Evening News are reporting that they are set to sign Tonga international Ata Hingano. The 24-year-old half-back is currently a free agent after his contract expired with Salford.
