Chief executive Steve Gill has confirmed that Castleford Tigers have turned down three bids for Denny Solomona.

The future of the New Zealand-born flyer has been the subject of much speculation since the end of the season, but he remains a Tigers player and is expected to join his team-mates when they are back in training early next month.

Gill said: “Denny’s got a two-year contract with us.

“We have rebuffed three approaches for him, two from rugby union and one from rugby league, and nothing’s changed from that day.

“We haven’t sold him and we’re not loaning him back like I’ve heard some rumours.

“Our stance is that he’s not for sale and we expect Denny back in on November 7, back training with the first team squad.”

Sale and Gloucester are believed to have been the rugby union clubs to have shown an interest in Solomona, with talk of a £300,000 bid being made, while Warrington Wolves inquired about the winger and Wigan are also monitoring the situation.

Solomona is in demand after a fantastic second season at Cas when he scored 42 tries and broke the club and Super League tries in a season record.
