The Gold Coast Titans have reportedly given Jai Arrow permission to immediately begin negotiations with other clubs.

Could this be a move by the Titans to make Arrow feel less restricted? Possibly a move so the Titans know earlier how much money they need to pay to keep him at the club? Or could Arrow be looking to pastures new? Time will tell.

 

ideal player for Parramatta.

  • The race to sign Jai Arrow will intensify this week after the Gold Coast gave their star forward permission to negotiate with rival clubs immediately.

    NRL.com can reveal the Titans have put forward a lucrative four-year deal, believed to be around the $3 million mark, to keep the Queensland Origin representative beyond 2020.

    However Arrow has told the Titans he wants to wait until he hits the open market on November 1 before making a decision.

    In a bid to fast-track negotiations, the Titans have granted Arrow’s management permission to receive offers before November 1 from rival clubs for 2021 in the hope of sorting out their future sooner than originally expected.

    Both parties don’t want to sit on their hands for the next two months just waiting for the date to tick over to begin negotiations and have agreed it is in the best interests of all involved to kick off proceedings immediately.

    The news is expected to ignite a bidding frenzy over the coming weeks for one of the game’s most sought-after forwards.

    Parramatta and the Bulldogs are two of the most cashed-up clubs in 2021 and are keen on luring the 24-year-old to Sydney.

    Arrow is contracted with the Gold Coast until the end of next season and the club would like to upgrade his final year, however the Titans’ current salary cap situation makes it almost impossible for them to do so unless other players were to move on.

    NRL.com understands his preference is to remain on the Gold Coast but is open to testing his value on the open market and potentially moving away if the right deal comes along.

    The Titans, who have not made an official statement on Arrow's negotiations, recently identified the lock, fullback AJ Brimson and 19-year-old prop Moeaki Fotuaika as their priority retention targets, extending the deal of the latter earlier this week until the end of 2022.

    • Im not a fan of his modern first name, pass from me.

      • They wanted to call him Green but it was already taken.

            • The father knew Abel was dodgy so he left it to young Michael. You'll have to watch the rest of the serial to find out what happens
