Wigan Warriors coach Adrian Lam has confirmed the club have held talks with one of the high profile Burgess brothers for next season.

It was recently confirmed that South Sydney powerhouse George Burgess will leave the Redfern based club at the end of the season, with speculation linking him to a number of other NRL clubs and a potential move to Super League.

However, whilst addressing reports in Australia that state the 27 year old has signed at the DW Stadium, Lam admitted the Cherry and Whites have made an approach for the England Test front rower, but a deal was yet to be agreed.

“It’s quite obvious we’re short in the middles and like, I’m sure, every other Super League club, we’ve shown interest in him and contacted his manager,” Lam told Wigan Today.
