Chris Heighington looks set to be in Super League next year after being offered to a number of clubs in England.

Heighington is off contract at the end of this season and appears unlikely to remain in the NRL beyond the end of the year.

The 34-year-old, who is eligible for England through his father, was linked with a move to Super League last year. However, he was rewarded for his contribution to Cronulla’s title-winning campaign with a new one-year contract.

Heighington is not the only Cronulla player that could be on their way to Super League, with utility Daniel Mortimer also understood to be in discussions with a number of clubs.

The 26-year-old joined the Sharks at the start of the season from Gold Coast Titans.

But he has yet to make an appearance for the NRL champions, with the subsequent arrival of former Leeds hooker James Segeyaro dropping him down the pecking order.

Also off contract at the end of the year, manager Steve Gillis is currently in England trying to find a deal in Super League.
