Norman linked with move to Dragons


//

Controversial Parramatta playmaker Corey Norman has been linked with a move to the St Illawarra-Dragons as cover for homesick England international Gareth Widdop.

It's said the Saints are considering signing Norman from 2020 with Widdop expressing a desire to head back to the UK after next season, however it is understood a deal could also be on the table for next season.

"The talks are very early at this stage but they see him as a potential insurance policy in case Gareth Widdop has a change of heart," Danny Weidler told Nine News.

"He's committed to the club for 2020 but has expressed homesickness. He could change his mind at any point and the Dragons are worried about that happening. Of course there is problem though, he's under contract at Parramatta and the club would rather Mitchell Moses leave."

The Eels were initially hoping to offload Norman to free up some money to make way for Jarryd Hayne but the Dally M medalist's legal troubles have the scared the Eels away.

Parramatta has been trying to offload either Norman or Mitchell Moses for quite some time now but they haven't been able to secure the right deal.

If the Dragons were to sign Norman they would need Parramatta to pay a percentage of his salary for next season, with the five-eighth owed $940,000 by the Eels in 2019.

It is understood the Dragons had around $550,000 of salary cap space available.
