James Segeyaro a Shark in 2017

It is understood that James Segeyaro will play for Cronulla for the 2017 season and beyond.

Segeyaro, 26, is set to become a Cronulla Shark for the 2017 season, as it believed that the Cronulla Sharks and Leeds Rhinos have come to agreement of a revised transfer fee.

Segeyaro officially took up a two-year contract last September with the Rhinos, removing a get-out clause at the same time, but after visiting family and friends after the Rhinos 2016 campaign, he decided to walk out on Leeds and informed thm that he will not be returning to England to honour his contract and will remain in Australia.

Segeyaro made a huge impact at the Rhinos after joining them after the Penrith Panthers released him July. Segeyaro helped them win nine of their last 10 matches of the season to comfortably retain their Super League status.

The Cronulla Sharks have been heavily linked with Segeyaro and it now looks they have landed their man, who will replace premiership hooker Micheal Ennis who retired after winning the 2016 NRL premiership with Cronulla.

The Deal is expected to be announced by the end of the week.
