Angus Crichton has confirmed that he’ll be leaving the South Sydney Rabbitohs at the end of the 2018 season, with speculation rampant that he will sign with the Sydney Roosters.

The Sydney Morning Herald has reported the Crichton is certain to sign a three-year deal with the Roosters, and are reporting that the deal “is rumoured to be close to $1 million a year.”

Crichton will stay with South Sydney for the 2018 season and serve out the remaining year of his contract, but has rejected what was reportedly a four-year deal offered to him by the Rabbitohs, albeit less lucrative.

South Sydney released the following statement on Monday:

“Angus Crichton has informed the South Sydney Rabbitohs that 2018 will be his final season with the Club, having committed to a contract with another NRL club for 2019 and beyond.

“The Rabbitohs made a strong three-year offer to Crichton for his services beyond 2018 however he has chosen to take up a more lucrative offer elsewhere. Crichton will be remaining with the Rabbitohs for the 2018 season.

“Crichton has played 30 NRL matches to date, scoring eight tries since making his debut in 2016.

“The Rabbitohs look forward to the 2018 season with Angus and wish him the best for the future beyond the end of next season.”

More to come.
