Catalans boss plays down Hardaker link

Catalans Dragons boss Laurent Frayssinous has played down speculation linking the club with a move for Zak Hardaker.

Recent reports have linked the England international with a return to Super League and Catalans have been tipped as his most likely destination.

The 24-year-old has been playing in the NRL with Penrith Panthers since sealing a move away from Leeds Rhinos.

However, Frayssinous has moved to play down the speculation and insists that no contact has been made.

Frayssinous said:“I have never been in contact with Zak or his manager. What I do know is that Zak is a good player, an international player.

“But, no, nobody has contacted me regarding him.”
