Half-back Liam Foran has left Super League strugglers Salford City Reds after only six months.
Kiwi-born Foran, brother of New Zealand international Kieran, played 17 games for the Reds but has been out of the first team in recent weeks after arriving from Manly Sea Eagles at the start of 2013.
He told Manchester’s Evening News: “I really wanted to play three years in England but it’s not to be.”
“I am looking at going back into the NRL – I know I can go well at this level having done so in the past. Manly is a great club to be part of.
“It’s very professional and there are great leaders who are on hand to help and offer advice.”
