After being given permission to assess his options elsewhere, Rabbitohs fullback Corey Allan had quickly been linked to a move south to the Melbourne Storm, with any deal of the sort now unlikely to come to fruition, per The Daily Telegraph.
Allan earned an Origin call-up for the Maroons’ historic Game III victory after 10 appearances and five tries with Souths this season.

Following the confirmation of Storm star Josh Addo-Carr’s departure to Canterbury from 2022, Allan had been linked to the Victorian side, with The Telegraph’s report now suggesting Craig Bellamy won’t be luring the 22-year-old to AAMI Park.
The Rabbitohs have given Allan the opportunity to sign a long-term deal elsewhere, but will see the versatile fullback as a viable second-string option to Mitchell in 2021 following an injury-riddled first year at Redfern.
Several NRL clubs will see Allan as an appealing target for their respective No.1 jumpers, with the Rabbitohs youngster holding plenty of untapped potential.
