Off-contract Cronulla Shark James Segeyaro seems to be in hot demand, with the Newcastle Knights now chasing the hooker, according to Tony Adams.

Newcastle recently had their sights set on New Zealand Warriors star Issac Luke, but given 31-year-old now requires a shoulder reconstruction, it seems the Knights have pulled back on their interest.

Segeyaro looks set to be leaving the shire in 2019, currently reported to be in-talks with the Bulldogs, but the Knights could provide the 27-year old with another opportunity.

The Knights seem to be the team to have the money Segeyaro might be after given they have gone cold on Luke.

Segeyaro could be the missing piece Newcastle are after to complete their spine structure, as they want a top class dummy half to give fullback Kalyn Ponga much needed early ball service.
