St Helens winger and Golden Boot winner Tommy Makinson has been allegedly spotted in Newcastle, New South Wales, sparking rumours that the flyer could be on the move to the NRL.

The Knights could well be on the look out for a winger with Ken Sio moving back to England to Salford following a two-year spell with Newcastle.

The NRL club are putting together an impressive squad as they attempt to build on a solid campaign in 2018.

David Klemmer has been brought in as the enforcer they need along with Tim Glasby from Melbourne Storm and Makinson could provide the X-Factor on the wing.

England international Makinson is still to return to training but whether the story is fact or fiction will become clearer this afternoon (Monday) when St Helens coach Justin Holbrook will be
holding his first press conference since the end of last season.
