The talented winger now comes off contract at season ends, with no contract agreement in sight between both Jones-Bishop and Wakefield Trinity, rival teams are beginning to circle for the 28-year old.

Jones-Bishop has started the 2017 season in exceptional form too, scoring 10 tries from 10 appearances for Trinity, only helping drive up his asking price for 2018 and beyond.

A number clubs are believed to be interested in signing the 28-year, with former club the Rhinos leading the charge, wanting to improve their attack on the edge.

St Helens are also interested in Jones-Bishop for the 2018 season and beyond, as they look to resurrect an attack that has been failing.
