Tigers keen on Solomona
Ball-playing forward David Solomona may be leaving Parramatta.
Wests Tigers are showing significant interest in Solomona.
Solomona still has a year to finish on his current contract at the Eels but Parramatta and the Tigers may work out a settlement.
Parramatta CEO Denis Fitzgerald confirmed Solomona might be shifting clubs.
"We would certainly consider any proposal from the Tigers" Fitzgerald said last night.
"We have to be as flexible as we can with the salary cap."
One of the games most creative forwards, Solomona was a member of Parramatta's 2001 Grand Final squad.
Solomona's manager, Allan Gainey, said the Wests Tigers had until the end of this week to make a "suitable offer".
"There is definite interest from the Wests Tigers," Gainey said last night.
"Parramatta have told David he is welcome to look for other opportunities but at the same time he is also welcome to stay at Parramatta.
"We're trying to get a resolution by the end of this week. David wants his future settled.
"But if the Wests Tigers cannot come up with a suitable arrangement by the end of the week then David will be staying at Parramatta."
Wests Tigers chief executive Steve Noyce was last night unavailable for comment.
