Eels playmaker Corey Norman is set to leave the club at the end of the season, according to a report by The Daily Telegraph‘s Dean “The Bulldog” Ritchie on Triple M.
“Last I heard Huddersfield in England had made a big play,” Ritchie said on Triple M.
“I don’t think (Norman) will be at Parramatta next year. It’s just a matter of whether he’ll go to England or not.
“Certainly the money I’m hearing from Huddersfield is big. So perhaps we might see him. quite sadly I might add, lost from the NRL.”
Asked if there were any other NRL clubs interested in Norman should Parramatta decide to move him on, Ritchie noted that several suitors have recently inquired about his services.
“There may be. Canberra was linked to him for a while. Newcastle was linked to him,” Ritchie added.
“I just think Parramatta are looking for a culture change out there. They’re not necessarily blaming Norman per say, or individually for their season this year. Which has been a horror season I might add.
“I think that Brad Arthur is under the impressive that if he keeps the same team next year, potentially the same result. And if they do get the same result next year it might be ta das to Brad Arthur.”
