    Another question is if he is playing this year, will he join the team in the world club challenge or play for his mob.

      If Latrell does stay with us (unlikely), he’ll play the Indigenous game rather than the WCC (just like last time). This potential clash won’t be a problem for Latrell going forward if he joins the vermin.

        Yes correct , you must win the Gf to get in the WCC , unlikely the vermin achieving any such feat in the near future .
        I Hope.

          Why should the club waste their resources on getting Latrell fit for Souffs,let him balloon even more,he's going to end up looking like his dad and brother in a few years.

            I still have a slight hope he's playing for us this year but there should be a line drawn in the sand, mature up and get treated like the rest of the team instead of expecting the club to dedicate a nanny to his needs.

              Hoping everything in the media was just blown out of proportion. then he plays for us this season and half way through the season everyone makes up and he signs a long contract with us.

              If he goes to the Souffs which I think he will I will be more pissed then when RTS left us for the Warriors

                Agent war stalls Latrell Mitchell move to South Sydney

                Nick Walshaw , The Daily Telegraph

                January 4, 2020 4:37pm
                Roosters superstar Latrell Mitchell has become embroiled in yet another agent war.

                The Sunday Telegraph can reveal Mitchell, who is represented by manager Wayde Rushton, has requested an immediate release to join the stable of rival NRL agent and boxing promoter Matt Rose.

                The switch, which would be the 22-year-old’s third agent change in less than eight months, comes as talks between the Kangaroo and South Sydney intensify.

                The reigning premiers officially return to pre-season training Monday, but it is understood Mitchell won’t commit anywhere until the management change is finalised.

                For months, now, it has been claimed Rose has been speaking on Mitchell’s behalf with officials from Souths, Wests Tigers and the Roosters.

                In an interview with The Daily Telegraph shortly before Christmas, however, the agent said he had no professional control over the Australian Test star and was not involved with any potential move to South Sydney.

                Rose added he had no clue where Mitchell was headed for the upcoming season and said it was not his intention to get involved.

                Rushton, meanwhile, looked set to make Mitchell rugby league’s newest $1 million man — as well as getting him a desired switch to fullback.

                Apart from securing the Kangaroo incumbent a four-year deal with Wests Tigers worth upwards of $4 million, Rushton had also negotiated a bumper Adidas sponsorship.

                Latrell Mitchell is odds-on to join Souths.

                Elsewhere, the agent had also been negotiating with Bunnies officials to have rugby league’s top pointscorer potentially jump the fence to Redfern for 2020.

                Only last May, Mitchell spoke glowingly of his move to Rushton’s camp after the Roosters poster boy endured a public falling out with manager Steve Deacon, telling The Daily Telegraph: “There were days I couldn’t get out of bed.”

                At the time, the centre conceded his public break-up with Deacon, coupled with rumours about him being unhappy at the Roosters,then wanting to join Sydney rivals like Souths and Parramatta, had taken a heavy toll.

                Bunnies coach Wayne Bennett is understandably a huge Mitchell fan and would obviously enjoy the challenge that is getting the best from the mercurial three-quarter.

                Already, Rose has solid links to Souths given one of his clients is Bunnies No.6 Cody Walker.

                The brother of retired NRL cult favourite George Rose also manages NSW Origin incumbent Jack Wighton.

                And now it seems Mitchell will be the latest indigenous star to join his small stable.

                While Rushton has secured the $4 million Tigers deal, it is understood the management switch could be finalised as soon as Tuesday.

                While the reigning premiers remain keen to get Mitchell off their books immediately, Roosters coach Trent Robinson has rejected reports suggesting he will dump the centre to reserve grade if he chooses to see out the last year of his deal.

                As of Saturday afternoon, Roosters coaching staff were expecting Mitchell to show at training on Monday morning.

                        South Sydney coach Wayne Bennett appears to have performed another Olympic-standard backflip and now wants to pursue Sydney Roosters star Latrell Mitchell, who is poised to employ a new player-manager.

                        The Sunday Telegraph can reveal Mitchell has just about reached a payout figure to split with manager Wayde Rushton in favour of Matt Rose, the agent who is brother to former Manly prop George.

                        Well-placed sources suggest influential connections extremely close to Souths have offered to stump up the payout money, aware Rose has strong links at Redfern.

                        If the payout deal can be finalised today, Souths and Rose could hold talks over Mitchell as early as Monday.

                        It can also be revealed Bennett has spoken with Rushton about Mitchell’s management situation. Rushton’s release figure for Mitchell was originally around $140,000 but that figure has fallen.



                        Rose also manages indigenous stars Jack Wighton and Cody Walker. Souths are aware their chances of signing Mitchell would increase if the club dealt with Rose.

                        Just last month, Bennett insisted he didn’t want the 22-year-old Mitchell, saying: “We won’t be signing Latrell — we have enough centres. I am happy with Braidon Burns and James Roberts.”

                        Now it looks as though Bennett has softened his stance and wants to consider signing Mitchell to a one-year deal on a reduced contact.

                        Bennett has previously backflipped after telling the media he wasn’t chasing James Roberts. In April, 2019, Bennett slammed press reports he was pursuing Roberts, saying: “It starts with you guys (the media) sitting in coffee rooms and thinking ‘what am I going to make up today’. Then you ring me and say ‘have you been talking to so and so?’” Bennett signed Roberts soon after.
                        Signing Mitchell for 2020 would allow Souths the necessary time to offload players — possibly Dane Gagai and Alex Johnston — to accommodate the Roosters champion long term.

                        Rabbitohs co-owner Russell Crowe hasn’t publicly spoken about Mitchell but it is known the Hollywood star is a big fan of the NSW and Kangaroos centre.

                        It is unknown whether Crowe and Bennett have spoken about Mitchell.

                        Souths’ recruitment of Gold Coast prop Jai Arrow from 2021 ensures a tight salary cap at Redfern. The club has money in its cap for 2020 but Arrow is likely to secure an early release and play at Redfern this season.

                        Mitchell is due at Roosters training on Monday but it is unlikely he will appear. Sources close to the Roosters claim Mitchell won’t be at Bondi this season, even though he has a contract for 2020.

                        Mitchell rejected what many thought was the ideal offer — a $4m, four-year contract to play his preferred fullback position at Wests Tigers.

                        Speculation has been strong for weeks that Souths would look to grant early releases should Gagai and Johnston secure other clubs.

                        Mitchell has been encouraged by trusted friends to join Wests Tigers but it appears he isn’t interested.

                            The article in the Telegraph from Ritchie is total speculation. Sources here sources there! Not one direct quote from any party involved. Seriously, If Souths have to release players to sign Latrell, don’t they have to do that before signing him? Otherwise they are over the cap?
                            I feel the Roosters do want him gone. Especially Nick who is very strong on loyalty and integrity. Latrell has not shown these qualities over the past few months. I’d say Nick has had enough and him being a tough, ruthless businessman who if crossed is unforgiving.
                            Only problem is Latrell has a contract for this year and until he asks for a release the Roosters are stuck with him.
                            Anyway, in saying that I feel it’s likely to be sorted sooner than later.

                              If there isn't an announcement coming tomorrow, Robbo should just tell Trell to not turn up to avoid the uncomfortable circus that will prevail. Assume something like that will happen.

                                He apparently said no to us and yes to the Indigenous team same as last year, which angered our club, reportedly.
                                We wanted him to play in the WCC seeing as how he was allowed to play in the All Stars game last year.
