After a pair of disappointing losses to open the season, the Eels are apparently already looking for reinforcements.
According to The Mole on WWOS, Wigan prop Ryan Sutton has been given permission to seek an NRL deal, and Parramatta are at the front of the queue.
The report suggests that the Knights were also previously interested in Sutton, but appear unlikely to make an offer, leaving the Eels as the only bidder.
Being English, he should fit right in at Parramatta, who – after back-to-back losses on 35+ degree days – don’t seem to like the heat much, either.
Sutton has made 86 appearances for Wigan since making his debut as a teenager in 2014.
