Alexander confirms that it is a big contract being offered by Leeds.
“Trent’s been offered a contract at Leeds and it’s a substantial contract,” Alexander told the club’s website.
Penrith have told Merrin that the are more than happy for him to take the offer and are leaving it all up to him.
“Penrith have said if you want to take that offer, that is your decision,” he added.
“I know Trent has a couple of years at the club but if he does decide to leave we will miss him.”
What ever Merrin does Alexander wishes him all the best as Leeds are a dominant club in English rugby league.
“If he gets a four year deal at Leeds, which they are a great club in the English Super League, I’ll wish him well,” Alexander said.
