Canberra veteran Ryan James is set to officially sign with the Brisbane Broncos for next season, pending a release from the Raiders.

According to The Courier Mail, James and the Broncos have agreed to a two-year deal for the veteran to venture back to Queensland, with the Red Hill club now awaiting a release to be finalised.

James has long been linked to a move to Brisbane, with coach Kevin Walters looking to add experience and depth to his squad for next season.

The Broncos have enjoyed a stellar season of signings this year, with Adam Reynolds, Kurt Capewell, Jordan Pereira, Brenko Lee, Billy Walters, Corey Jensen and Logan Bayliss all venturing to Brisbane for 2022.

James - along with Jensen and Capewell - will add to an emerging forward pack at the Broncos, led by New South Wales prop Payne Haas.

Despite being contracted with the Raiders for next season, James will opt out of the final year of his deal with the Green Machine under the club's permission.

The Tweed Heads product will bring in a wealth of experience to the Broncos' squad, having played 158 games across his career.
