Sharkies young gun Billy Magoulias has reportedly been given permission to speak with rival clubs regarding a potential move as a result of him receiving little play time at the Cronulla Sharks.
The Daily Telegraph reports that the Greek international was granted permission to look elsewhere for next year and beyond, despite a year remaining on his contract.
Magoulias, 23, has struggled to find a spot at the Sharks this year despite a growing injury toll for the club. He played the last of his two games in round three and only in recent weeks has he again been part of the 21-man squad.
The Greek-Australian has been hailed as one of the NRL’s greatest upcoming talents, with Blue’s coach Brad Fittler reportedly being a big fan of the young player’s talents.
“I know the one person who absolutely loves him is Brad Fittler…not just because of his Greek heritage but because he can play the game, which I absolutely love,” NRL commentator Peter Psaltis previously said to The Greek Herald.
“He plays in such a positive manner, good ball runner, and I can see him being a really good lock-forward or second-rower for many years to come.”
Magoulias has proved in his youth career that he has what it takes to bring home a trophy, bringing Newtown a NSW Cup and National Championship victory, yet is still waiting for the opportunity to prove himself in the NRL.
