Sunshine Coast product Moses Mbye has reportedly secured a four-year NRL deal with the Bulldogs, although his management has denied any contract signings.
The 22-year-old utility has reportedly been offered almost $3 million to commit to the Dogs until the turn of the decade.
A number of NRL clubs had expressed interest in Mbye's signature but the Dogs desperately want to keep him, especially after halfback Trent Hodkinson's decision to link with Newcastle, leaving Josh Reynolds needing a new scrum base partner.
They played a handful of games together last season including the last few rounds and finals when Hodkinson was out injured.
News Limited has reported the deal, worth around $750,000 a season, will be revealed soon.
Meanwhile, there was no movement on NSW hooker Robbie Farah's future with the Wests Tigers or any new developments in James Roberts' contract forgery investigation at the Gold Coast Titans.
The messy Farah affair appears to be at a stalemate with the NRL unlikely to register a contract with a new club unless he is adequately remunerated according to his status in the game.
