Sean O'Loughlin has spoken publicly about his future for the first time since Leeds' interest in him emerged.

The Grand Final-winning skipper is out of contract and Wigan are keen to keep him - but the Rhinos have also made a play for him.

O'Loughlin faced the media at the launch of England's autumn series against New Zealand in Leeds today, where he revealed he will be staying at Wigan in 2019.

He said: “Hopefully it’s all sorted with Wigan now. I’ve not actually signed because I’ve been in camp but it’s all done and dusted.”

The skipper also confirmed there were offers on the table to move away from Wigan.


“The one which there was most noise of was Leeds, I think when you’re off contract it’s nice other teams show an interest and you always have to listen because it’s your career at the end of the day," he said.

"But I wanted to stay at Wigan and be part of the team going forward.”
