Wakefield deny Ross interest

Wakefield chairman Michael Carter says his club is not interested in signing Newcastle winger Nathan Ross.

Trinity have been linked to a move for the NRL flyer for next season.

“I haven’t had any contact with anybody called Nathan Ross,” Carter told Love Rugby League.

“I get quite a few names at me thrown at me from Australia.”

Wakefield have also been linked to interest in Hull KR halfback Albert Kelly in recent weeks.

The Australian, who joined the Robins in 2015 on a two-year deal from the Gold Coast, has scored 19 tries in 32 Super League appearances.

Current Wakey boss Chris Chester coached Kelly at Hull KR.

Carter said his club would be interested in the scrum-half, if he was available, but described a move as unlikely.

“I would imagine that Chris, having coached Albert Kelly for a couple of years, recognises what a great talent he is,” he said.

“As far as I’m aware he’s got a contract for next season.

“Anybody in their right mind would be interested in Albert Kelly because he’s a fantastic player, but we’ve got Liam Finn and Jacob Miller and we’ve got both of them for next year as well.

“I can’t see Albert Kelly being a massive priority in how we’re going to structure our squad for next year.

“But he is a fantastic player. If he became available everybody would be interested.

“He’s not one who’s been offered to us, as far as I’m aware he’s at Hull KR next year.”

Wakefield is believed to be close to a deal for Cronulla forward David Fifita.
