Halifax captain Sean Penkywicz has denied reports he has already penned a two year contract with Leigh, saying he will not decide his future until the end of the season.
Penkywicz has been repeatedly linked with the Centurions in recent years, but has always opted to re-sign with Fax, where he began his professional career as a 16 year old more than a decade ago.
This time things could be different though, with informed sources from across the Pennines insisting the deal to take Penkywicz to the LSV is already signed and sealed.
Fax boss Karl Harrison confirmed last week that Penkywicz had been made “a very good” offer to stay put.
“I’ve not signed for anyone,” insisted Penkywicz, who could come up against Paul Rowley’s side in play off action before the end of the month.
“I have spoken to Leigh, obviously, but I’m not deciding anything until the end of the year.
“I’ve only got a couple of years left in me, so that’s why I’m taking my time.
“A two year deal will be my last contract and I’ve got to make sure I do what’s right for me and my family.
“It’s a hard decision.
“It’s my hometown club, but do I go there or stay where I’ve been virtually all my career?
“Either way, nothing will be announced until the end of the season.”
