Former Wests Tigers centre Taane Milne has received a deal with NSW ISP side Mounties, in a bid to reignite his chances of playing in the NRL once again.

Milne had his Tigers contract ripped up earlier this month after breaching the NRL's illicit drugs policy for the second time. confirmed Milne's new deal, with the 22-year-old set to spend the rest of the 2018 season with Mounties.

After his second breach, Milne was it with a 12-week ban that he must serve before he can then return to the field.

Milne should be able to return to the field later this season, before hoping to sign a deal with an NRL club ahead of the 2019 season.

Fox Sports believe at least five clubs have already shown interesting in Milne for 2019.

Milne didn't make a first grade appearance for the Tigers, and has played just 18 NRL games for St George Illawarra over the past two seasons.
