Newcastle great Matty Johns says the Knights should enquire with the Bulldogs about the availability of injured playmaker Kieran Foran.

The Bulldogs revealed on Monday that the 27-year old would require season-ending surgery on his injured toe.

And considering Canterbury are still tied up in back-ended contracts and looking to offload salary, Johns thinks the Knights should at least make a phone call, despite Foran's hefty price tag.

“If I was the Newcastle Knights, I’d be making subtle inquiries to the Bulldogs,” Johns told The Late Show with Matty Johns.

“At the right price, I’d team him up with Mitchell Pearce — they’re best mates.

“It’d be a fair spine if he gets back to toward best: Foran, Pearce and Kalyn Ponga.

“What’s the right price … it depends how much trouble the Bulldogs are in (salary cap wise).

“If you’re the Knights, for $500,000 would you take a punt and have a subtle inquiry?

“It’s high risk, but if it pays off, big dividends.”
