Danny Levi has “come to terms” with the likelihood of not being at Newcastle next season.

Levi is contracted to the Knights until the end of 2021, but does not appear to be in their future plans since they agreed terms with Cornulla’s Jayden Brailey.

The 23-year-old has played 79 NRL games for the Knights and four Tests for New Zealand since making his senior debut in 2015. He has produced career best form in the last 12 months, despite the uncertainty over his future.

“I haven’t really worried about it, to be honest,” he told the Newcastle Herald.

“I can’t control what the club decides. I’ve just got to focus on playing really good footy, and just say it is my last year here, I want to go out in a good way.

“I feel like if I start worrying about that sort of stuff, it’s going to affect my game.

Despite appearing out of favour, Levi is keen to remain at the Knights and is ready to fight for his position should he stay at the club.

“I love this group of boys, I love the club and the town. Obviously I’d love to stay but I can’t control what happens in the future.”

“I’d love to stay, but if I can’t, that’s just how it goes. As long as I’m here, I’m doing my best for this club.”

“I’m never shy of competition.”

Levi and the Knights will host bottom of the ladder Canterbury on Friday night.
