Penrith Panthers veteran James Tamou is reportedly set to finalise a deal with the Wests Tigers.
Tamou has been heavily-linked to the joint-venture club in recent weeks, with a reported two-year contract set to be signed, according to Channel 7’s Michelle Bishop.

The 31-year-old is a huge get for a club that’s been struggling with professionalism and it’s image of late.
Tamou has 262 NRL games under his belt and counting and is a premiership winner.
It comes as a huge blow to new Dragons coach Anthony Griffin with Tamou identified as a target to boost their forward pack for 2021.
