RE: Latrell Mitchell Contract Discussion
posted in Contracts
Latrell Mitchell’s priority this whole time has been to play with the Roosters for 2020, explore his options and test his market value and make a decision at the end of the year for 2021 which he is perfectly entitled to do so.
However, all this changed when the Roosters pulled the 800k a year offer and as of yesterday officially let him know there was 0% chance he wears the tri colours beyond 2020 which understandably brought him to tears as he has been apart of the club since he was 15.
Latrell Mitchell had actually verbally agreed to terms with the Wests Tigers roughly a fortnight ago as there is interest in joining the club… however had a change of heart and wanted to get the confirmation from the Roosters face to face about there contract offer before he did anything official.
When the Wests Tigers learned of Latrell backing off and taking his time with the process, they had pulled there offer (with no ill will towards Latrell) more just so they had the flexibility to sign other players if they had decided to do so
During the meeting with uncle nick, Latrell had brought up how he felt stressed and the reality of him moving forward became real this led Nick Politis to call the chairman of the Wests Tigers on behalf of the Wests Tigers in order to see where the stance on was with the contract offer and if they were willing to bring it back - in which Lee (chairman) agreed too on behalf of the club
Now at this point, discussion between Latrell and the Wests Tigers are back on and who knows what will happen next
At this point it looks set, barring an introduction of a surprise team which seems unlikely - the romance between Latrell and the Wests Tigers looks set to be official sooner rather than later!
