Broncos utility is keen on returning to the Cronulla, as reported by The Daily Telegraph.
But the Sharks will not be able to fit the 23-year old into their books without the help of the Broncos.
The Sharks’ back five stocks are depleted following the losses of Jesse Ramien and Ricky Leutele, and the uncertainty surrounding Valentine Holmes means Bird would be an ideal addition.
However, they may have to offload Josh Dugan’s lucrative deal contract in order to fit Bird into their salary.
Bird has struggled through his first year Brisbane, being hampered with a sternum injury that has restricted him to just eight games.
