The Bulldogs are set to announce the signing of Josh Dugan for season 2018 season and beyond.
Dugan, 26, is believed to have signed a 3-year deal with the Canterbury bulldogs worth around $900,000 per season.
The Dragons upped their initial offer of $700,000 per season to the NSW and Australian representative to around $800,000 per season, but it still wasnt enough to match the Bulldogs.
Dugan joined the Dragons mid-way through the 2013 season, after being released by the Raiders due to a number off field incidents.
Dugan signed a four-year contract extension at the end of the 2013 season keeping him at St George-Illawarra until the end of the 2017 season.
The Dragons wanted to pay Dugan as a centre, but he wanted to be paid like a top line fullback and the Bulldogs didn’t hesitate in swooping in and stealing the services of Dugan.
Dugan, has made 143 NRL appearances, scoring 53 tries and represented Australian (6 caps) and NSW (9 Caps), since making his debut for the Raiders in round 4 of 2009 season.
