The Parramatta Eels have hit back at media reports that Kieran Foran is set to bail on his contract after it surfaced that the Eels board want to alter Foran’s deal that has a number of clauses in his favour that weren’t apparently approved by the Eels board.
The statement reads: “The Parramatta Eels are aware of news coverage today relating to the status of five-eighth Kieran Foran’s contract with the club.
The Eels have been working with the NRL and Kieran Foran’s management on two clauses within his contract that were previously undisclosed to the Board and senior football management.
The discussions have been productive and it is the club’s understanding that issues surrounding these clauses can be resolved.
The club is extremely disappointed that these confidential discussions have been made public.”
