Green: No Warriors deal yet

Wigan Warriors playmaker Blake Green insists he is yet to sign a new contract with the club after head coach Shaun Wane revealed talks had commenced.

Green, who was Man of the Match in last year's Grand Final as Wigan beat Warrington 30-16, is out of contract at the end of the season and has been linked with an NRL return.

The 27-year-old Australian has confirmed he is in discussions with Wigan regarding an extended stay at the DW Stadium, although an agreement is not close.

Talks are at an early stage and while former Hull KR man Green has enjoyed his time with Wigan Warriors, he main focus remains on the club's upcoming fixtures.

Initial talks

"I haven't signed a deal yet," he told League Express.

"I'm currently talking to Waney [Shaun Wane] at Wigan to sort something out, but at the moment I haven't signed anything, although I've really enjoyed my two years so far at Wigan.

"I wouldn't say I am close to signing. We only started talking last week. It will take care of itself, and I haven't put much emphasis on it.

"We've got a really important month ahead, with some big games coming up. My job is to ensure we are winning games and to stay focused on the footy, so it's really at the back of my mind at the moment."
