The Eels have softened their stance with the deadline given to Clint Gutherson’s on signing a new deal, reports the Sydney Herald.

Parramatta originally gave the 24-year old a week to accept a $2 million deal over three years, but have back flipped on that decision.

It comes after handing coach Brad Arthur a two-year extension on Tuesday.

“The reality is [Eels general manager of football] Mark O’Neill and [Gutherson’s manager] Sam Ayoub have continued their dialogue, they met today, but there is no deadline,” Eels CEO Bernie Gurr told the Sydney Herald.

“The negotiations will continue because there is no deadline. We have continually told Sam and Clint we want him to stay at the club – we want Gutho at the Eels. He’s the captain, he’s a popular member of our club, so nothing has changed there.”

It is understood that a rival club enquired about Gutherson’s plans after being set the week deadline, with links to his old club Manly also being made.

The Eels are still looking to re-sign Mitchell Moses too, who is off-contract at the end of the season.

  1. Gutherson’sa great poker player. Look at his picture for this story, he is displaying his poker face. I’d say he has four hearts💓💝❤💘

    • Redv13 this is your poker face ☹ 🤡🤡🤡🤡 four jokers ya CLOWN🤣😂🤣😂🤣 How’s Kev………..”Good Luck Kev” 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂

  2. I Reckon Gutherson Does Deserve A Pay Increase But The Question Is How Much? He Is Injury Prone But One Of The Better & More Consistent Players Within The Squad.

    Thoughts Eels Fans?

  3. On tonight’s news he has described himself as a player. He said its a business. It came out of his own mouth but bobfulton 🤡🤡🤡 does not believe what’s on the news.

    So if Parra don’t give him what he wants then someone else will. I’m sure the souffffffffffs “TRANSIT LOUNGE” could give him what he wants with Russell Crowes brown paper bags.🐓🏆

    • I must of missed the news the day when 7 witnesses came out and told everyone what happened in walkers case…
      Oh wait they didn’t and media can write what they want…
      Clint Gutherson has come out and said what he is after so yes that’s reliable off news.
      Don’t worry woodhen, your ignorance and attempt at humour will work on someone someday, I’m sure eventually and 6 year old will start commenting on this site and then you may not be the least intellectual person on here… that’s just a maybe still…

      • Ahahahahaha🤣😂🤣😂🤣💪👴👍 How funny is that, You did not watch any news and because the 6 TV stations that all mentioned about the amount of witnesses said it and you did not see it, then it did not happen.

        Did you know man walked on the moon in 1969 or is that a youtube conspiracy also ❓❔❓❔ ya full blown BOZO🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡 by the way BobBozo🤓 it was on the news

        Also what was on the NEWS was Gutherson was woken up to himself and avoided the Brookvale Goat track for a brand news Stadium at Parra for 3 more years.💪🐔👍😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣

  4. 2 mil over 3 yrs. Considering his ACL issues over the last few years, take the $$$ and sign the contract

  5. Greedtherson is an ungrateful bastard Parramatta was paying him for not playing when he was injured, now when it gets to repay back what the club did for him he wants to walk away, saw on channel 9 news he will wait to next week, probably waiting for manly offer, if he was a really loyal player to Parramatta he would sign by now
