Knights hooker Danny Levi faces an uncertain future after his manager Mario Tartak was suspended by the NRL, as reported by The Newcastle Herald.
Tartak was suspended by the league last Friday over a bankruptcy issue stemming from a dispute with American Express.
Following Newcastle’s addition of Sharks hooker Jayden Brailey on a three-year deal, Levi has been given permission to talk to rival clubs.
Already receiving little interest on the market, Tartak’s suspension further complicated matters for Levi and makes it more likely he will remain at Newcastle in 2020.
All 16 NRL clubs have been told not to deal with Tartak during his suspension.
Tartak also manages Rabbitoh Damien Cook and Manly’s Manase Fainu.
