The Canberra Raiders have begun talks with Melbourne Storm halfback Ryley Jacks to bring him to the club when his contract runs out.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald's David Polkinghorne, the Raiders are after Jacks to replace Blake Austin who will ply his trade in the Super League next season.

Jacks has fallen out of favour at the Storm behind Brodie Croft, who is expected to play the halfback role in this Sunday's Grand Final.

Jacks was close to signing with the Brisbane Broncos, only for the Broncos to withdraw their offer during the final stages of their discussions.

No formal offer has been made to the 26-year-old as of yet and a move to Canberra would see him join a number of playmakers vying for the halfback role, including Aidan Sezer and Sam Williams.
