Nigel Vagana could be on his way to England after contract talks broke down with his club, the Canterbury Bulldogs. The New Zealand Test centre has a host of admirers in the Tetley's Super League, with Bradford, Leeds, St Helens and Wigan all thought to be interested in signing him.
But he could still remain in Down Under once he is free to discuss his future following the expiry of the National Rugby League's anti-tampering deadline on 30 June.
"We want to find out what his options are," said Vagana's manager Gavin Orr.
"We already know what they are in England. That was his second option all along."
Vagana has already had a taste of British rugby league, having had a spell Warrington in 1997.
