The Eels rebuild has officially begun.
According to The Daily Telegraph, the Eels have agreed to terms with Roosters winger Blake Ferguson on a new three-year deal, that will see Ferguson head to Parramatta until the end of 2021.
It’s long been known that the Eels were on the hunt for a winger to replace Semi Radradra (they were heavily linked to Panthers winger Josh Mansour, before he opted to stay put at Penrith), but their pursuit of Ferguson specifically was kept pretty quiet.
The club has also been linked recently with Sharks hooker James Segeyaro, as they look to improve on a disappointing 2018
Ferguson has played 181 first grade games for the Roosters, Raiders and Sharks, 7 Origins for New South Wales, and 7 Tests for Australia.
