Graham left St Helens at the end of the 2011 season and has since been one of English rugby league's finest exports, going on to play for Canterbury and currently St George Illawarra.

The Dragons said in a statement on Thursday that the 34-year-old forward has spoken to them "regarding an opportunity for him to return to the English Super League with immediate effect".

The club added they would consider the move if a replacement can be sourced for Graham, whose deal ends at the conclusion of the season.

Saints are a likely landing place for Graham, with the club for whom he made 244 competitive matches before his NRL move having a vacant spot.

Last week they allowed Luke Thompson to leave for a deal with Canterbury ahead of time, a move made by Graham nine years ago.

Graham has 50 international caps for Great Britain and England.
