It is believed that Knights star Kalyn Ponga has moved to extend his stay at the club with a rich contract proposal.
Fox Sports is reporting that the 21-year-old’s manager has recently spoken with the club about a four-year deal worth $6 million.
The young star is currently contracted until the end of the 2021 season with a player-option for 2022, but this new deal would see him through until the end of the 2023 campaign.
Ponga’s manager Wayde Rushton confirmed the two sides had met, but did not disclose the terms discussed.
“I did recently meet with Newcastle about an upgrade and extension for Kalyn,” Rushton told Fox Sports.
Ponga is currently in the midst of another impressive season, scoring nine tries and assisting on eight in his 15 games to rapidly become one of the brightest stars in the NRL.
11th-placed Newcastle will travel to Bankwest Stadium for a date with the sixth-placed Eels on Saturday.
