The soap opera between Jarryd Hayne and the Gold Coast Titans continues, with the embattled fullback reportedly looking to quit the club after the Rugby League World Cup.

Newscorp reports Hanye’s manager Wayne Beavis is looking at different options which would see the former NFL player return home to Sydney.

Hayne’s understood to be looking to move away from the Gold Coast to be closer to his daughter.

A move to Parramatta seems most likely, but he’s even considering a shift to Rugby Union.

The move to leave the Gold Coast comes just weeks after the Titans appointed Garth Brennan as their new head coach, and Hayne insists the coach has nothing to do with his desire to leave.

The Titans expect Hayne will return to the club after the Christmas break to start pre-season training in January.

Gold Coast released a statement this morning, saying they’re “not in negotiation with any other club regarding Jarryd Hayne’s future” and “there has been no application made for Jarryd to be released from his Titans contract”.

They will not be making any more comment.

So Hayne is manoeuvring to get back to Parramatta? What a world we live in. Gets Henry sacked then walks out on club.

Hayne’s had a tumultuous year on the Gold Coast, waiting until the last possible moment to invoke the second year of his $1.2 million dollar contract and playing a key role in the sacking of former coach Neil Henry.

He’s currently playing at the Rugby League World Cup representing Fiji.
