Wests Tigers won't stand in Moses Mbye's way if he finds 2021 suitor


The Wests Tigers have granted Moses Mbye permission to negotiate with rival clubs for the 2022 season.

The 27-year-old reportedly asked the club on Wednesday if he could begin talks with opposition clubs as his future remains unclear with the Tigers.

While his contract expires in 2022, The Daily Telegraph’s Michael Carayannis thinks the club could even grant a release as early as this year.

“I think if he finds the right deal, the Tigers won’t stand in his way,” Carayannis said on SEN 1170 Breakfast.

“He’s obviously on a massive contract, it’s worth about $800,000 for next year.

“He signed a four-and-a-half-year deal when he moved from Canterbury in 2018.

“If he can find a club immediately, I don’t think the Tigers will stand in his way.

“At the moment they’ve only given him permission to negotiate from 2022.”

While Mbye will begin chatting to other clubs, Carayannis believes the utility will have no problem seeing out his Tigers contract if the right offer doesn’t eventuate.

“There’s no bad blood between Moses and the club at the moment, if nothing eventuates, he’ll remain a Tiger,” Carayannis added.

“But, I think both parties will be keen to get the deal done.”
