Transfer news; Moses Mbye to Dragons; Wests Tigers ultimatum; Trent Barrett on Kyle Flanagan

The Dragons issued an ultimatum to the Wests Tigers about Moses Mbye, get the deal done for the rest of the season or it’s off the table.

Mbye was linked with the Dragons early in the season only to move into a potential mid-season.

The 27-year-old, with a salary of $900,000 a season, has previously indicated he is open to a switch after stepping down from the captaincy and finding himself in different positions throughout the year.

Later this week James Hooper reveals Tigers official tipped off Raiders about a four-player swap deal involving Mbye and Luke Brooks for Jack Wighton and Josh Hodgson.

Now, Australia’s Brent Read reports the Dragons have renewed their pursuit of Mbye.

“Obviously they watched Mbye earlier in the year but it didn’t attract any traction,” Read told Triple M. “They’re looking at him again.”

“The Dragons and Tigers are in the bubble together in Queensland so they can talk face to face or negotiate because in the bubble you can contact other clubs

“They want him for the rest of this year, he has a year left on his contract after that.

“It has become a case of the now or never. If he doesn’t come by now, the deal is off the table. “

Clubs have until August 1 to finalize their roster for the remainder of the 2021 season.

Kyle Flanagan’s arrival at Belmore as a multi-million dollar signing for the Canterbury Bulldogs ushered in the Trent Barrett era at the club.

But the full-back had to go through a season that was nothing short of a record.

Flanagan started the Bulldogs’ opening nine games before he was unusually dropped due to underperformance in the team’s 32-12 loss to the Dragons.

The 22-year-old returned to first place in the round of 16 against Manly in the round of 16, but Barrett’s side were beaten 66-0 by the Sea Eagles.

Flanagan, the son of top award-winning coach Shane, was once again left out of the starting lineup for the Doggies this weekend against the Sharks.

His season has been successful to deceive, with reports emerging from the UK of Canterbury buying him to Super League clubs.

However, Barrett denied that there was any truth in it.

“I haven’t heard that,” Barrett said.

“Clearly Kyle has signed here for another two years, so he will be given every opportunity to improve himself as a player and make up our team.

“I’m not sure where that came from.”
