Parramatta have laid a better contract in front of captain Clint Gutherson as they look to keep him at the club beyond 2019.
NRL.com understand the Eels have decided to up their pre-Christmas offer for Gutherson, after deciding they wanted to work harder at extending his deal.
Gutherson’s manager Sam Ayoub is set to meet with Gutherson in the coming days to discuss their revitalised offer.
Parramatta’s original offer to Gutherson was in the region of $500,000 a season, although the new multi-year deal reflects his impressive start to the season.
The 24-year-old has helped the Eels to a 3-2 start to the season, as they prepare for their clash against the Tigers this Monday.
