Adam Reynolds looks set to walk away from South Sydney at the end of the NRL season amid reports he will sign with Brisbane.
The Rabbitohs halfback is believed to have told teammates on Wednesday he will reject a one-year extension from the club and a multi-year offer from Cronulla to join the Broncos.
It’s understood Reynolds intends to sign the multi-million dollar contract, believed to be a three-year deal, while he is in Brisbane for the NRL’s Magic Round this weekend.
The Rabbitohs meet the Sharks on Saturday and Reynolds is a chance of playing despite a thumb injury.
The Sharks were also in heavy pursuit of the 214-game star over the past few weeks but put a deadline on his decision by the end of Wednesday.
However, it appears Reynolds will take the big money on offer from the Broncos, who recently lost Tom Dearden and Xavier Coates to rival clubs for next year.
Should Reynolds put pen to paper with the Broncos, it will bring to an end his 10-year NRL career with the Rabbitohs, where he had hoped to remain a one-club player.
The 2014 premiership winner is a beloved club junior who was raised just around the corner from Redfern Oval, South Sydney’s spiritual home.
His contract with the club expires at the end of 2021, but the Rabbitohs refused to budge on a one-year extension for their playmaker, who wanted a longer-term deal for more security.
The Rabbitohs will turn their attention to re-signing Reynolds’ halves partner, Cody Walker.
