Sheffield Eagles enquired about Greg Inglis

The manager of superstar Greg inglis has revealed that Championship outfit Sheffield Eagles contacted him with a view to signing the Souths player in the future.

The full-back has been linked with a number of moves away from South Sydney, but it looks as though he favours a switch to Brisbane Broncos, once his deal at South has expired.

“He has two years to go on his contract but I am getting inquiries every day.

“Even the Sheffield Eagles, a division two club contacted me,” said the player’s manager, Allan Gainey, according to the Brisbane Sunday Mail.

“He is captain of Souths so I don’t think he is considering moving any time soon.

“It would be a monstrous transfer fee payable to South Sydney. Souths won’t let him walk.”

That huge transfer fee also means that it is unlikely that Inglis would be moving to rugby union before his current deal expires, despite media reports claiming that the Australian Rugby Union is keen on securing his services.

The player is considering his options, however, and two agents are reportedly working on behalf his manager to sell him to European clubs.

Brisbane looks the most likely option for a club where Inglis will end his career, however.

He has recently bought a house in the Queensland city, and his wife Sally will be living there for some of the time in the near future.

He would also like to work with Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett again.

Inglis’s deal with the Rabbitohs expires in two years, when he will be 30.

“He has bought a house in Brisbane and Sally is living up there at times during the year,” Gainey added.

“That’s where he will eventually settle.

“He is enjoying life. He’s very busy. He spent the eight weeks up in Brisbane.

“He is doing up a house up there and when he’s not playing that’s where he spends most of his time.

“Now that Wayne is there the Broncos are a chance.”
