Parramatta Eels Coach Brad Arthur has confirmed he wants veteran Jarryd Hayne back at the club in 2019 but concedes he’s ‘not confident’ a deal will be done.
Sporting News reports, Hayne officially became unemployed yesterday as the one-year deal expired.
As the 30-year-old’s team-mates endured a grueling first day of pre-season training, Hayne was notably absent after failing to agree to terms with the club in recent weeks.
The two-time Dally M medal winner has made it clear he wants to return for another season and the Eels claim they want to sign Hayne.
