After only one season in the NRL, Dan Sarginson is being heavily linked with a return to Super League and his former club Wigan are leading the way for his signature.

The 24-year-old left the Warriors to join Gold Coast ahead of the 2017 season, but a shoulder injury has restricted him to just six NRL appearances and the Titans are ready to release the England centre.

Sarginson, originally from Perth, has struggled to settle Down Under and was only recently cleared of assault charges after an incident at a Queensland hotel in June.

He had previously arrived in Australia with big expectations after impressing locals while playing for England during the 2014 Four Nations.

However, much like many English backs who try their hand in the NRL, Sarginson has struggled and his potential availability has alerted his former club.

Wigan were reluctant to let the Londoner leave at the end of last year and League Express has reported that he wants to return to the DW Stadium.

However, with Anthony Gelling and Oliver Gildart currently occupying the centre positions, it remains to be seen whether Shaun Wane would be willing to pay big money on the cap for a role that doesn’t need filling.

Sarginson earned a reported £224,000 last season and while he wouldn’t require that money in Super League, Wigan are not currently in a position to afford the services of their former centre.

The Warriors are attempting to offload Frank Paul Nu’uausala, who has struggled to adapt to the English game, and if they are successful with this and are able to acquire some money in the process, they may be tempted to make a move for Sarginson.

Interest from Hull

Hull KR chairman Neil Hudgell tweeted on Saturday that the club is ready to announce a big addition to their 2018 roster and Sarginson would certainly fit the bill.

According to League Express, Rovers have declared a heavy interest in the former London Broncos man as they search for quality additions ahead of their return to the top flight.

KR coach Tim Sheens has made adding a centre one of his main priorities and with most Super League clubs now reluctant to let players leave as we approach the New Year, the availability of Sarginson presents the perfect opportunity.

With space still left on the cap, the biggest challenge the Robins could face is persuading the former Grand Final winner to join a newly promoted club, especially if Wigan decide to make a play for their former player.

But with Danny McGuire already added to Rovers’ ranks for 2018, Sarginson may see this as a fresh challenge and in the process make the East Hull outfit a major force to be reckoned with next season.
