Penrith half James Maloney has all but confirmed the identity of the Super League club he looks set to join.

The two-time NRL Grand Final winner has long been linked with a switch to Super League, with Leeds and Catalans understood to be two of the clubs interested.

And Maloney is quoted in the Australian media this evening as saying he’d relish the lifestyle in the south of France, indicating that a move to the Dragons is on the cards.

Though he stopped short of confirming he’d make the move for 2020.

Maloney told Triple M: “Well, they reckon the lifestyle’s outstanding over there.

“It’s always been the goal to finish up with a stint over there (Super League) and we’ve always sort of thought, in terms of lifestyle, the south of France would be a little better than the north of England.

“Whether it happens immediately for next year or whether we’re looking at when the Penrith deal expires, it’s definitely on the radar.”
