Kieran Foran will honour his contract at the Canterbury Bulldogs despite interest from former club Manly.
An injury-free and newly married Foran has returned to preseason training on Monday and has impressed Bulldogs staff with his effort and attitude.
Foran is keen to revive his career and fight for his starting place ahead of new recruit Jack Cogger.
Reports emerged returning Sea Eagles coach Des Hassler expressed interest in reuniting with his former protégé.
Foran played a pivotal role in the Sea Eagles 2011 premiership triumph.
Despite the lure to return to the club he played 148 games for, Foran is keen to remain at the Bulldogs.
The 28-year-old played 12 games and scored one try for the Bulldogs in 2018.
