Bulldogs front-rower David Klemmer says he can't see himself anywhere other than Canterbury, admitting he would like to stay with the team despite poaching rumours.

Parramatta Eels have reportedly reached out and shown interest in the NSW prop in the midst of the Bulldogs' salary cap debacle they wish to solve heading into next season.

The Bulldogs are faced with the challenge of juggling salaries and may need to dump some of their players in the process and Klemmer has been linked as one of the players they wish to offload.

Klemmer told The Daily Telegraph that he wants to stay right where he is, saying it would be "hard to leave."

“I’m contracted here at the moment and I could never see myself leaving, I love the club,” Klemmer told

“I was a supporter of the club as a kid, it would be hard to leave. “The club hasn’t contacted me yet.”

“It’s frustrating to hear but I could never leave this club ... It’s hard to hear but I’ve just got to keep turning up here."

“But it’d be pretty hard to leave.”

Klemmer has been with the Bulldogs for his entire NRL career, and has played 101 games for the Dogs since making his debut in round one, 2013.
