Despite two years left on his deal with the Melbourne Storm, winger Josh Addo-Carr is said to be tossing up a return to Sydney.
Addo-Carr has been a bona fide star since joining the Storm in 2017 from the Wests Tigers and has about $700,000 left on his current contract.
Yet according to Nine’s Danny Weidler, Addo-Carr and his manager, Chris Orr, will both meet with Storm officials in Sydney to try and nut out a deal which would see the flyer leave Melbourne.
"I’ve been hearing for a while that Addo-Carr wants to base himself in Sydney because of a changed family situation.
At this point I haven’t heard that Addo-carr has asked for a release nor has he fielded any firm offers," he said. “But that could change with today’s meeting.”
Addo-Carr was asked whether he viewed Melbourne as home just weeks after the the season ended, and he was quite clear on where his heart is.
When asked last week if Melbourne or Sydney was home, Addo-Carr made it clear the Harbour City is where his heart is.
“Sydney is always home for me,” Addo-Carr said.
"I’m grateful for what Melbourne have done for me. They’ve turned my career around. They’ve turned me into the player I’ve always dreamt to be.
“Sydney (though) is always going to be home. My whole family is there. If I want to start a little family, I want my kids to grow up with my family.”
Addo-Carr also credited Craig Bellamy with helping him transform himself on and off the field.
“It was the culture of Melbourne,” Addo-Carr said. “We have good leaders. You have to work hard to be in the side. You don’t get given the jersey. You earn it.”
