Wigan coach Shaun Wane says he will wait to make a decision on the future of Ryan Hampshire until the end of this season.
Hampshire is on loan to Castleford fom Wigan.
Wane told Wigan Today he has yet to make a call on the utility for 2017.
“To be honest I’ve not even given it a thought,” he said.
“He’s playing at Cas at the moment, I’m just trying to get players in my team and get players fit, that’s taken up all my mind-space.
“I watch every Cas game, I watch how he’s going, and I know John (Winder, assistant coach) speaks to him regularly so I’ve nowhere near made my mind up yet with what we’re going to do.”
