South Sydney has released a statement addressing reports in the media suggesting star outside back Dane Gagai is seeking a move away from Redfern.
Following the news that broke on Tuesday night, the Rabbitohs' website has released the following statement, including quotes from coach Wayne Bennett.
The Rabbitohs have refuted reports in today’s media that Dane Gagai is considering leaving the Rabbitohs ahead of the completion of his contract.
The Rabbitohs have stated that there has been no approach from Dane himself, or his management, about a release from his contract.
Rabbitohs Head Coach Wayne Bennett said: “I have spoken to Dane this morning about reports in the media today.
“He has reiterated that his preferred position is centre, which he has said to me previously, however he is happy to play on the wing, or in fact any position in which the team needs him to play.
“He is committed to the Club, he loves playing here, and he has no intention of leaving the Club over next few years as per his contract.”
